This day-long event, co-hosted by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and the Community College of Philadelphia, included an introduction to alternative fuel vehicles and fueling technology, technical presentations on specific systems, and a vehicle fair featuring a diverse array of vehicle types and fuel systems.

Davis’ presentation included an overview of the NAFTC and information on the importance of natural gas, propane, and electric drive vehicles. This presentation on three viable alternative fuels set the tone for the conversations to follow.

“The questions I received were excellent and showed the knowledge of the participants on alternative fuel vehicles and their desire to expand that knowledge. It was a great day for me because I love working with people who have put effort into what they are dealing with,” said Davis.

More than twenty-five instructors were in attendance, some of whom have worked with the NAFTC in the past through trainings and workshops.

“The NAFTC is known nationwide as an expert in the field of alternative fuels training and alternative fuel vehicles. If we don’t have the answers, we can gather that information from our industry contacts,” said Davis.

Slides from the NAFTC presentation can be found on the DVRPC website.
