After 15 years working to build a market for natural gas in transportation, Seal Beach, CA-based Clean Energy Fuels Corp. has released a public listing of major fleet operators using natural gas vehicles (NGV) in a resources document it is calling "The Road to Natural Gas." It is a listing of trucking companies, refuse haulers, fleet operators, airports, municipalities and other organizations that have signed new or expanded agreements with Clean Energy to provide transportation fuel and other services for their vehicles and fleets. According to the NGV fuel and infrastructure provider the report contains "only information which has not been previously announced, including recently completed stations on Clean Energy's designated America's Natural Gas Highway with a partner, Pilot Flying J, and at other interstate locations. Clean Energy's report includes new customers that it expects to ultimately use hundreds of thousands of gallons of natural gas fuel every month, according to CEO Andrew Littlefair who added that his company so far this year is exceeding its own internal plans for its core refuse, airport and transit markets. "There are natural gas engines now available for more vehicle classes; the U.S. has an abundant supply of cheap natural gas, and there is a greater understanding of the economic and environmental benefits of using natural gas as a transportation fuel," Littlefair said.
