State of Sustainable Fleets

Our team launched the first comprehensive, technology-neutral annual report examining the current state of sustainable fuel and vehicle technologies across the transportation industry.

Challenge: Educate Stakeholders about the Latest in Sustainable Transportation Practices and Trends

The State of Sustainable Fleets market brief is an annual report that gathers real-world data directly from early-adopter fleets across the U.S. to provide deep sector-specific insights into the adoption of natural gas, propane, battery electric, and hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicles. This first-of-its-kind report includes unique insights into vehicle sale trends, anticipated vehicle development timelines, real-world infrastructure and fuel costs, and the growing adoption of renewable fuels. The report has been released yearly at ACT Expo since 2020.
