The four-day event, which runs from May 9 to 12 in the western U.S. state of California, has drawn global speakers from around the industry to discuss how vehicle and engine manufacturers are leading the charge ahead in reducing emissions and offering leading edge transport solutions.

The agenda of the expo highlights the growing availability of ultra-low and zero-emission vehicles and technologies, increased consumption of renewable low carbon fuels, and initiatives to rapidly expand clean fueling and charging infrastructure.
