Future of Fuels

A vision of commercial road freight fueled by low-carbon sustainable technology



Commercial freight transportation is at the cusp of a transition. Energy supply is changing with new fuels entering the market, increased cost volatility, and questions about the impacts of fuel. Yet low-carbon energy for commercial freight is in short supply and technological barriers to their adoption are daunting. Furthermore, mixed and competing claims obscure clarity on the sustainability of fuel choices. Credible, fuel-neutral analysis and solutions are needed to drive transition sustainably.


Our mission is to build demand and promote adoption of clean energy technology for trucking. We focus the efforts of leaders across the value chain to identify common challenges and foster progress on sustainable energy sources for vehicles with technology-neutral solutions including insights, tools, and events.

Fuel Sustainability Tool

Today, there is more information, and more people are expecting, vehicles and fleets to run on cleaner, more sustainable fuels—but which fuels are clean? And what makes them sustainable? Our Fuel Sustainability Tool simplifies sustainability for fleet owners and provides credible, comparable data for fleet planning and fuel purchasing.
