PERC Renews Presenting Sponsorship for 2014 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo

Council puts propane autogas at the top of the agenda with educational seminars, real-world fleet case studies on America’s leading alternative fuel


WASHINGTON (Feb. 19, 2014) – The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) announced today the renewal of its presenting sponsorship of the 2014 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, North America’s largest alternative fuel and clean vehicle technology conference taking place May 5-8 at the Long Beach Convention Center.

PERC’s presenting sponsorship for the clean vehicle expo means propane autogas will once again be a focus in educational seminars, technology advancements, and keynote presentations. PERC, a nonprofit organization focused on research and development, commercialization, and the deployment of new propane-fueled technology, has long invested in the growing alternative fuel transportation sector.

“Propane autogas is playing an increasingly important role in reducing emissions, strengthening our domestic energy economy, and improving the economics of green transportation for thousands of fleets across the country,” Roy Willis, PERC president and CEO, said. “As a presenting sponsor, we look forward to demonstrating the financial and environmental benefits of propane autogas and providing the resources that fleets can use to evaluate their alternative fuel options.”

Fleet managers can preview new propane-autogas-fueled vehicle technology, explore industry resources, and talk with PERC staff at its expo hall booth, #911. PERC will also host one of the conference’s leading educational seminars, featuring a Q&A with fleet managers moderated by Tucker Perkins, PERC’s  chief business development officer. Additionally, Willis will provide remarks on the state of the propane autogas market, which doubled vehicle sales in 2013 and is projected to grow through 2020.

More than 3,500 attendees and 200 sponsors, including original equipment manufacturers, technology providers, and fuel suppliers, are expected to gather in Southern California for ACT Expo 2014. Details on the conference agenda, registration rates, and speakers can be found at actexpo.com.
