The Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, a major advanced transportation and clean fleet event, will take place at the Long Beach Convention Center in Southern California Aug. 30-Sept. 2.

ACT Expo 2021 will spotlight what innovative transportation leaders — vehicle OEMs, technology and fuel suppliers, policymakers, and public and private fleet operators — are doing to move the industry forward. 

“The investments we are seeing in the advanced transportation and clean energy sector are accelerating at a pace never seen before," said Erik Neandross, CEO of clean transportation consulting firm GNA, which produces the event. "Fuels and technologies that were once considered an ‘alternative,’ are becoming the core focus of global OEMs, an array of industry start-ups, and most importantly, a central part of fleet operators’ procurement plans."

ACT Expo 2021 will offer insight into the latest trends, policies, and technologies driving fleets to invest in advanced clean transportation solutions, including:  

  • Growing availability of low- and zero-emission vehicles and low carbon fuels for fleet applications
  • Commitments to corporate sustainability and greening of the supply chain leading to scaled deployments
  • Financial incentives and technology advancements to create more compelling total cost of ownership
  • Key climate and environmental policies being adopted at the state level across the U.S. and by the Biden administration
  • An exhibit hall showcasing all vehicle applications and fuels, including electric, hybrid, hydrogen, natural gas, propane autogas, and renewable fuels.

Daimler Trucks North America, Penske Transportation Solutions, and Shell are returning as presenting sponsors.

“In spite of the challenges brought on by COVID-19, the pace of innovation and technology development has only continued to increase in the last year and has recently started to accelerate with a range of new product announcements from both traditional suppliers and ones being assisted by the hundreds of millions of dollars of new investments,” added Neandross.

ACT Expo is inviting interested parties to submit proposals for presentations and case studies. Case studies should be relevant to end user fleets with a focus on evaluation criteria, funding received, infrastructure and maintenance plans, procurement considerations, and total cost of ownership. Abstracts should be submitted to conference organizers no later than Feb. 26 at 5 p.m. PST.
