ACT Research Doubles Down on Natural Gas Analysis

December 27, 2016

Based on recent analysis, ACT Research believes that the natural gas and alternative fuel industries in the U.S. are “alive and kicking,” and suggests that fleets should consider which solution best fits their needs.

ACT Research analysts believe that fleets should determine whether or not alternative fuels is right for a firm’s operation, and which specific fuel technology provides the best benefit. Figuring out the best solution involves researching available infrastructure, engine technology and emissions regulations in the operating area.

Another important consideration is determining how maintenance will be handled and whether a fleet’s own facilities should be modified or constructed to be compliant with applicable fuel codes.

To help in this effort, ACT Research is offering a white paper titled Taking the Next Step: Preparing the Maintenance Shop for the Arrival of Natural Gas Trucks. Originally offered via subscription only in 2013, it is now available for no charge.

ACT also is going to expand its natural gas and alternative fuel coverage in a revamped Natural Gas & Alternative Fuels Quarterly report, offering information on fuel prices, infrastructure, research and development, cost of ownership, and other important metrics.

“What we’re providing is what we do best, the research and analysis, so that our subscribers can do what they do best, which is focus on their fleet and their fleets’ future,” said Kenny Vieth, ACT’s senior partner and general manager.
