About the Event

Alternative fueled vehicles are available for almost every type of vehicle, from passenger sedans to school busses and heavy-duty trucks. The Fueling the Future event presented the economic and environmental benefits of alternative fueled vehicles and helped fleet managers understand the options and benefits open to them. Attendees also learned about and toured some alternative fuel vehicles currently available on the market.


Expert panels will discuss the benefits, common misconceptions, and success stories of alternative fuels like propane, natural gas, and electricity that improve and progress the transportation sector by providing lower-emissions and cost-saving alternatives to traditional gas and diesel vehicles.
