The Role of Natural Gas in Fleets

NAFAboothspace.JPG

We are finally back in OKC after four jam-packed days in St. Louis for the NAFA Fleet Management Association Institute & Expo. Thousands of fleet managers, vendors, manufactures and industry pros flocked to the Show-Me State to collectively discuss and discover the innovations and issues most relevant to their industry.

For those of us deeply involved in the compressed natural gas (CNG) movement, we all know that fleet vehicles will play an important role in catapulting the clean, American fuel we are so passionate about to mainstream success. This week was reassuring and illustrated that mainstream adoption is knocking at the door. For fleets in particular, CNG has clearly established itself as a heavyweight alternative to diesel. Fleets of all sizes and varieties are making the switch.

There is no microwavable solution to the energy crisis our nation faces and there is no universal correct choice for fleet vehicles. However, it was evident this week at NAFA that CNG is both a logical solution for energy independence and a practical fiscal choice for fleet managers. As the representative I spoke to from Leggett and Platt told me, there’s a reason why Fortune 1000 companies like the one he works for (and others like AT&T, UPS and Waste Management) are making the shift toward natural gas. If a vehicle travels 30,000+ miles per year, the payback is quick and the upfront investment makes sense. And as companies strive for corporate responsibly, using a fuel that burns exponentially cleaner than gasoline and diesel is a pretty solid move.

Check out the photos below to see some of the NGVs that made it to NAFA.  If you have questions about whether or not natural gas is right for your fleet, contact me at chad@cngnow.com and I will connect you with someone who can help.

We are looking in to converting our fleet to CNG. I'd like to thank CNG Now for all the great info! We found a reliable CNG conversion kit source at www.skycng.com. Check them out!

Chadosko,

I am in the begining stages of starting up an alternative energy company in the midwest. I am looking for the right conference that I can go to in order to gather information on compression & dispencing manufacturers as well as conversion kit manufacturers. Could you please provide me with any leads?

Also do you have any connections with OEM Systems there in OKC. I really want to tour that facility and understand the ins and outs of their cng coversion business.

diminuindo naturalmente a sua fluidez diminuição da temperatura, o automotivo torna-se mais espesso. A manutenção de um automotivo carro varia com baixa manutenção e outras, alta manutenção a temperatura, sendo inversamente proporcional à mesma.

Sempre que se referir a um valor que representa a manutenção contrário o valor não terá nenhum significado de um automotivo, deve-se referir também à temperatura.
