The Company is engaged in the innovation, development and production of natural gas fuel storage systems and the integration of vehicle system technologies, including engine and vehicle control systems and drivetrains. It designs, develops, and produces compressed natural gas (CNG) storage tanks and packaged fuel systems and other advanced fuel and propulsion systems for alternative fuel vehicle applications including hydrogen, electric, hybrid electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). The Company classifies its business operations into three reporting segments: Fuel Storage & Vehicle Systems (formerly referred to as Electric Drive & Fuel Systems), Renewable Energy and Corporate.
