Project Overview

NGV UP-TIME will provide fleets, natural gas vehicle (NGV) industry stakeholders, and other end-users with relevant, real-world information through a proven, multi-data set analysis approach detailing NGV maintenance costs to improve total cost of ownership calculations and to determine the maintenance cost differences between NGV technology generations (current state-of-the-art and current advanced clean diesel engines) for relevant medium and heavy-duty freight and goods movement applications. 

Gather data set on NGV & Diesel Vehicle

Operations in Freight & Goods Movement Fleets

Quantify the difference in maintenance and operational cost in NGV's and diesel vehicles

Identify and quantify

technology &

improvements between older and newer generation NGV's

Assess individual NGV fleets to identify opportunities to enhance operations using legacy & newly generated data

Data We Need From Fleet Partners
