NGVAmerica, a national organization dedicated to the development of a growing, profitable, and sustainable market for vehicles powered by natural gas or biomethane, has launched a new website with improved and expanded features. The updated site celebrates the rapid adoption of natural gas as a transportation fuel in the USA.
NGVAmerica.org has been redesigned to provide users easy access to the most in-depth and up-to-date information on the natural gas vehicle industry. The homepage features a navigation bar and drop-down menu with a new Stations section that provides current station counts and analysis, as well as detailed pages covering CNG and LNG station design, construction and economics. In addition, the Vehicles section now contains content covering the consumer, fleet and high-horsepower market segments.
NGVAmerica members continue to enjoy a number of exclusive online benefits, including access to the NGV Policy Portal, station and infrastructure analysis, and the new NGVAmerica Jobs Board. The NGVAmerica Jobs Board, which is featured as a button on the homepage, allows members to post open positions and receive exposure on one of the most highly ranked NGV websites online. NGVAmerica members are also featured in the online Business Directory, the only comprehensive company directory for the NGV industry.
“The new NGVAmerica website provides our members, as well as the general public, access to the most comprehensive and up-to-date information available,” said Rich Kolodziej, President of NGVAmerica, “Our website is an important way in which we continue to serve as the national voice of the NGV industry.”
Natural Gas as a Transportation Fuel is Growing
- According to the American Public Transit Association, about one-fifth of all transit buses were run by compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquid natural gas (LNG) in 2012. Currently, transit buses are the largest users of natural gas for vehicles.
- The fastest growing NGV segment is waste collection and transfer vehicles. Almost 50 percent of the trash trucks purchased in 2012 are powered by natural gas.
- More than 35 airports in the U.S. have natural gas vehicles in their own fleets or have policies that encourage use by private fleets operating on premises, making this sector the third largest in vehicular natural gas use.
- The successful Clean Port Initiative in Southern California is spurring adoption of similar policies in other ports on both coasts.
NGVAmerica, an Affiliated Association of NGV Global, represents more than 200 companies, environmental groups, and government organizations interested in the promotion and use of natural gas and biomethane as transportation fuels.
NGVAmerica will host the 2014 North American NGV Conference & Expo in Kansas City, Missouri, from November 10 – 14.
