The Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, North America’s leading clean transportation event, will take place April 23-26 at the Long Beach Convention Center in southern California. Now in its ninth year, ACT Expo is known for bringing together the entire clean transportation industry to network, learn about the latest technological innovations, share insights into the regulations on the horizon, and enable high-volume sales of low-carbon fuels and alternative fueled vehicles.

BSR’s Future of Fuels works with its corporate members and more than 600 stakeholders to improve fuel choices as a critical piece of the global freight agenda and ultimately to drive a sustainable transition to sustainable commercial freight.

At ACT Expo, the Future of Fuels team will lead an action-oriented discussion on the current and expected availability and application of low-carbon fuels for commercial freight to help fleets understand and compare clean technologies and match them with specific needs. Insights collected during the session will serve as inputs for a guide currently in preparation. Opportunities will also be provided for networking and one-on-one engagement between buyers and suppliers to address specific challenges.

As a partner of ACT Expo, BSR is offering participants a US$50 discount on conference registration. Please use the code BSR50 in the discount code box provided on the final page of the online registration.
