NGVi is now more than natural gas. Welcome to the new Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute – AFVi!


Janesville, WI, USA, June 14, 2023 – ANGI Energy Systems (ANGI), a Vontier company (NYSE: VNT) and leading provider of alternative fueling solutions is thrilled to announce the appointment of Dev Patel as the Senior Director of Global Hydrogen Sales.

As the alternative fueling industry evolves, ANGI recognizes the growing interest in hydrogen among its customers, including those traditionally involved in compressed natural gas (CNG). The appointment of Dev Patel reflects ANGI’s dedication to assisting its customers in transitioning to hydrogen and its future expansion in the hydrogen sector.

Dev Patel has over 20 years of experience in the gas industry working across both hydrogen and CNG markets.

“It is extremely exciting and encouraging to witness the progress and innovation within our company, and the industry as a whole, as we transition to alternative, cleaner fuels. My role underlines ANGI Energy Systems’ dedication to providing cutting-edge alternative fueling solutions and driving the transition towards a successful, sustainable and multi-energy future.

Our impassioned efforts reflect the changing industry landscape, such as the recent moves from the Alternative Fuel Vehicles Institute (AFVI), formerly the Natural Gas Vehicles Institute (NGVI), which is promoting its work across all clean energy fuels, to now include hydrogen, e-mobility and propane, alongside natural gas vehicle training.” 

ANGI Energy Systems reaffirms its commitment to the CNG industry and its valued CNG customers, while recognizing the significant potential of Hydrogen in the race to decarbonize the heavy-duty vehicle sector. The company’s advanced gaseous dispensing, compression technology and station building experience for CNG and RNG provide a strong foundation to continue to serve the market’s needs in the global energy transition.
