National NGV Fleet Summit

A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Robert HallIt gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Fleet Forum. Having spent 34 years of my professional career leading the development of large alternative fuel projects for UPS, I understand the tremendous value of peer-to-peer networking, particularly in the rapidly developing world of alternative fuels and advanced technologies.  Whether you currently have natural gas vehicles in your operation, or will soon start making investments in NGVs, membership in the NGV Fleet Forum will provide you and your company with tremendous value.

My experience taught me that successful, natural gas fleet operations can offer significant advantages to a company's bottom line.  Through the NGV Fleet Forum we hope to share experiences and technical information among peers to facilitate greater success and greater deployments of NGVs in our nation’s fleet operations.  The success of our mission will strengthen our economy, result in environmental improvement, and increase our nation’s domestic energy security.

Mr. Robert Hall, Executive Director, NGV Fleet Forum
