ACT Research’s 59th commercial vehicle seminar, scheduled from August 20 to 22, 2018 in Columbus, Indiana, will feature a variety of speakers from different commercial vehicle perspectives, all discussing how emission regulations and constantly changing technology is impacting their business and the industry at large.

“One of our four panel discussions at Seminar 59 will focus on the transition to electric buses that some fleets are now undergoing,” said Ken Vieth, ACT’s Sr. Partner and General Manager. He continued, “Blake Fonnesbeck from Park City, Utah, and Alan Westenskow from Proterra, will take the stage to discuss the adoption of electric buses, covering the challenges and opportunities from both the manufacturer and fleet perspectives.”

Vieth noted, “We expect Blake and Alan to address why electric power is being chosen, where a bus fleet starts if they are considering the switch to this alternative, what can be learned from those who are already in the transition process, and what each thinks the future of EV bus adoption looks like, amid constantly changing technology.” He continued, “We encourage anyone considering the transition of their commercial vehicle or bus fleet to electric or another alternative fuel to attend the seminar and get their questions answered directly from those on the leading edge of this technology adoption.”
