RF Fall Forum: Fall 2021

Save the Date: Fall Forum in Fall 2021

Unfortunately, the 2020 Fall Forum this Fall at GTI’s headquarters in Des Plaines, Ill., has been canceled. APGARF’s primary focus is on the health and safety of our members and the communities they serve especially during these tumultuous and ever-changing times and we look forward to the 2021 Fall Forum.

A thank you to all who attended our latest 2019 Fall Forum to see the research and development projects on operations, natural gas vehicles and emerging natural gas technologies at GTI’s headquarters in Des Plaines, Ill.

The Forum included informative classroom presentations and tours on important supply, operations, and end-use R&D projects, some of which are near commercialization.



It is free to attend the Fall Forum. 2021 Fall Forum registration will open in the summer of 2021.

What to Expect

The APGA Research Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation that serves as the “bank” for public gas system (PGS) voluntary research and development (R&D) contributions.

The APGA RF invests the bulk of its resources into GTI, a not-for-profit R&D organization located just outside of Chicago. GTI provides research, development, and training initiatives, which are designed to address issues impacting the natural gas and energy markets across the industry’s value chain—supply, delivery, and end use.
