TruStar Energy, a developer of compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations, announced that Anthony Flynn, southeast sales director at TruStar Energy, will address challenges and opportunities in converting fleets to CNG at the Fleet Management Expo in Charleston SC on April 5.
The session, co-hosted with Andrew Burnham of Argonne National Laboratory, is titled "CNG Vehicles Moving Forward: Thinking about converting but haven't made the switch?" Flynn will provide a clear picture on the feasibility of CNG conversion, and provide insights and resources for fleet managers to use to keep conversion and fueling projects on track and under budget through the transition process.
"Anthony is one of the best known experts in the CNG fleet industry. His clients turn to him to provide them real-world experience and guidance in converting fleets to CNG," said Adam Comora, President of TruStar Energy. "He's able to help fleet owners and operators better understand the ins and outs of fleet conversion and help them make short- and long-term plans to meet both financial and environmental goals."
In 2015 TruStar completed 41 stations for public and private use, almost doubling the number of CNG stations from 2014, and accomplished during a period of unusually low oil prices.
CNG is insulated from price volatility of diesel and gas that comes from international conflicts and events, which in recent years has been responsible for dramatic price fluctuations. As for the environment, CNG-powered engines produce 30% less greenhouse gases, and do not need the costly exhaust after treatment devices and DEF fluid required for diesel engines. Natural gas engines also have an average of 80% to 90% lower decibel level than diesel engines.
