Hexagon PowerTalks

April 19, 2023

The global quest for net zero emissions has accelerated the shift toward clean energy in the commercial transportation sector. More and more fleets are looking to reach emission goals at a faster pace, and making the right drivetrain choices is paramount to both their business and the planet.

Understanding the value proposition that each clean fuel technology brings to the table is vital to creating a level playing field for fleets – as well as the drivetrains that are driving this transformation forward.

Hexagon, a world leader in Type 4 composite technology and the company with the broadest portfolio of clean fuel solutions for the transportation sector, brings the discussion to the floor of this year’s ACT Expo Hall.

Hexagon’s PowerTalks features Game-Changers in clean fuel technology sector.  Together they will examine current and future developments across the complete spectrum of clean fuel options: compressed natural gas (CNG), liquid natural gas (LNG), renewable natural gas (RNG), fuel cell electric (FCEV) and battery electric (BEV).
