NATURAL GAS VEHICLE SYMPOSIUM THIS WEEK IN PHILADELPHIA

 NATURAL GAS VEHICLE SYMPOSIUM THIS WEEK IN PHILADELPHIA
 While the "Earth Summit" continues in Rio de Janeiro, and debate


over the comprehensive energy bill takes place in Congress, Philadelphia hosts a Natural Gas Vehicle Symposium this week at the Adam's Mark Hotel, City Avenue and Monument Avenue.
 The symposium will be hosted by Philadelphia Electric Company (PE) and Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW) and co-sponsored by Delmarva Power & Light Company and UGI Corporation.
 Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell will provide opening remarks at 8 a.m. Thursday, June 11, followed by Lt. Gov. Mark Singel on The Regional Outlook for NGVs.
 The keynote address at 12:30 p.m. Thursday will be provided by Texas oilman and entrepreneur T. Boone Pickens, an engaging nationally renowned speaker.
 At 1 p.m. Friday, June 12, PE Chairman Joseph F. Paquette Jr. and PGW Executive Vice President Alfred P. Degen will host a news conference at Fairmount Park, just east of Memorial Hall on Lansdowne Drive.
 -- Paquette and Deegan will address their companies' use of NGVs and accept keys from Fred Cook, GMC Trucks director of marketing, for natural-gas powered Sierra trucks, the first dedicated NGV production vehicles produced in the U.S.
 -- Members of the media and symposium attendees will have the opportunity to test drive natural gas-powered Sierra trucks within Fairmount Park.
 -- A collection of NGVs used by area fleet operators served by PE will be on display.
 The two-day symposium will educate fleet vehicle managers about the environmental and cost benefits of natural gas vehicles (NGVs) and demonstrate how NGVs work in 1992. Natural gas-powered cars, vans, trucks, and buses are available today and will become more evident as Clean Air mandates are implemented in the near future.
 The symposium will feature seminars, workshops, exhibits, and GMC Truck's "Ride and Drive." It will address NGV issues such as the legislative and regulatory forces, NGV equipment and conversions, the role of utilities, oil companies, automakers, and suppliers, and the user's perspective. The Industry Showcase will feature an ongoing vehicle conversion for NGV use and dozens of national exhibitors marketing their services and products.
