LONG BEACH, Calif. and SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 2, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gladstein, Neandross and Associates (GNA), organizers of the 2016 Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, announced the kick off of their sixth annual show taking place May 2–5 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Southern California. As North America's largest advanced clean vehicle event, ACT Expo brings the entire transportation industry together for an expansive showcase of the technologies, fuels, policies, and organizations driving innovation and sustainability on our roadways. ACT Expo 2016 is co-hosted with the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA), the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), NGVAmerica, the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE), and the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC). Penske Truck Leasing is the 2016 presenting sponsor.

"With worldwide momentum building to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels and lessen our impact on our planet, we're excited to bring more than 3,000 industry stakeholders together to discuss the policies, trends, and technologies driving the future of transportation," said Erik Neandross, CEO at GNA. "ACT Expo provides attendees a one-stop shop to discover the wide-range of options that can help fleet operators reduce fuel costs and emissions—including zero-emission vehicles, low carbon fuels, autonomous and connected vehicles, fuel efficiency technologies, and more."

Throughout the week, dozens of public and private fleet operators will share insight into the business case behind their commitment to deploying low carbon and renewable fuels and advanced technology vehicles and expanding infrastructure—despite the temporary dip in oil prices. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear how organizations from all corners of the transportation industry are using alternative fuels to mitigate the impact of volatile petroleum prices, proactively reduce emissions and improve environmental and cost performance, and drive business growth.

ACT Expo will also feature a massive exhibit hall on May 3, 4, and 5 representing all alternative fuel types—including natural gas, electric, hybrid, hydrogen, propane autogas, and renewable fuels. Attendees will gain hands-on access to alternative fuel vehicles and engine OEMs, electric drive vehicles, EV charging stations, refueling technology and fueling infrastructure, conversion products and service providers, equipment and technology providers, trucking efficiency solutions, fleet management telematics and GPS providers, and more.
