UN Climate Summit 2014
Climate change is not a far-off problem. It is happening now and is having very real consequences on people’s lives. Climate change is disrupting national economies, costing us dearly today and even more tomorrow. But there is a growing recognition that affordable, scalable solutions are available now that will enable us all to leapfrog to cleaner, more resilient economies.
There is a sense that change is in the air. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited world leaders, from government, finance, business, and civil society to Climate Summit 2014 this 23 September to galvanize and catalyze climate action. He has asked these leaders to bring bold announcements and actions to the Summit that will reduce emissions, strengthen climate resilience, and mobilize political will for a meaningful legal agreement in 2015. Climate Summit 2014 provides a unique opportunity for leaders to champion an ambitious vision, anchored in action that will enable a meaningful global agreement in 2015.
“All the world coming together this weekend to sound the climate alarm- you gotta be a part of this. This is the one you’re gonna want to tell your kids their kids and their kids about.” Where will you be on September 20-21? Bill McKibben invites you to join thousands and take action wherever you (More...)
The power of CNG in heavy-duty vehicles
Published on Sep 20, 2014
NGV Fleet Partners' Stewart Kennedy offers a window into an upcoming large-scale switch to CNG in Tulsa, Okla. This year, Tulsa Public Schools will begin replacing its fleet of diesel school buses with ones powered by compressed natural gas. The move will save millions of dollars for the district long-term and will have an immediate impact of the health and well-being of students.
John, taxi driver, receives recognition as EPM’s 50,000th CNG customer.
Empresas Públicas de Medellín (EPM), a public utilities company in Colombia’s second largest city, reached an important milestone this week in its commitment to sustainable mobility in the Aburrá Valley, attaining 50,000 compressed natural gas (CNG) customers. EPM began promoting natural gas fuel from 2002, and today has 60% of users in private cars and 40% in public service.
Medellin’s Sustainable Mobility strategy has recorded significant progress, EPM states in a press release. Lines 1 and 2 of the Metro mass transit system have 67 CNG buses, a mix of standard and articulated. Additionally, feeder basins for the system already have 257 buses dedicated to run on CNG, which demonstrates the commitment of Medellin to boost the use of clean fuels and friendly to the environment.
A taxi driver is EPM’s 50,000th NGV customer — John Albeiro Castro Carmona, 46, who has driven taxis for 20 years, the last 8 using CNG, has just bought a new taxi and instantly converted it to CNG also.
EPM commenced offering financial support for the conversion of private and public service vehicles and commercial fleets to CNG in 2002. The company currently has five conversion center partners (Autofrancia, Eurogas, Gas Inyección, Gas Express and Suragas) and 11 CNG refueling stations under the EPM brand, out of 60 sites that are currently in operation in the Aburrá Valley.
EPM offers encouragement to vehicle owners considering CNG conversion through lines of credit that match the needs of customers and which can be repaid via utility bills. Vehicle conversions are covered by a three-year warranty.
The growth of the natural gas vehicle population throughout Colombia has pushed the national fleet to almost half a million NGVs, EPM reports.
Anybody wanna take a guess on which country has the most car sales ?
Anybody wanna take a guess on which country has the most truck sales ?
Taffytaffy You all make some great points...DOES ANYONE POSTING ON WPRT, CLNE OR FSYS DRIVE AN NGV?
Nov sales and growth is following everyone's growth forecasts, so that success is already priced in. But widespread use won't ever materialize until "TRUE BELIEVERS" like you three start driving an NGV. ... More
Taffy taffy........with respect to wprt.....you are asking us to drive around in 18 wheelers buses and cement trucks ?
"This is a story stock. The market is saying that the story isn't happening."

I am 100% sure.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
since you are 100% sure ...do you agree to take a gun and blow your own brains out if you are wrong...and let us watch ??
I still think this is fallout from the gm recall
High pressure regulators from impco leaking and no replacements presently available
They ain't ours....perhaps we could offer ours as a temp solution until impco gets it's act together
"Terrible management and terrible execution"
Just saying that doesn't make it so
They have engines available with just about every oem and truck makers out there
I know ..they should be selling more engines and making more money.....right ?
