Study on future of alternative fuels to be discussed at NATSO Show
After completing a study on future transportation fuels, leaders from the National Petroleum Council will provide an overview of their findings during a public presentation. "Advancing Technology for Americas Transportation Future" was a two-year study that now provides an in-depth look at the future of alternative fuels in the United States through 2050.
Researchers began the study after the U.S. Secretary of Energy requested new information on alternative fuel industries. More than 300 engineers, academics, executives and other experts came together for the project, and verified the need for new fuel options to join diesel and gasoline in the future.
The study includes information on the topics of:
- Diesel power as a dominant fuel source in the future
- Gasoline power as a future competitor in the medium-duty vehicle sector
- The 2050 natural gas market share for the heavy-duty trucking industry
- Changes in heavy-duty truck fuel economy over the next forty years under the influence of engine, powertrain and other vehicle technologies
Findings will be presented and discussed at the NATSO Show on February 2-6 in Savannah, Georgia.
