The Petersen Museum Showcases Alternative Power Vehicles
In 2015, Los Angeles’ renowned Petersen Automotive Museum underwent an extensive $90 million renovation. Far more than just a new coat of paint, the overhaul comes with several new features: a restored and upgraded collection of historically significant American and european classics, groundbreaking race cars and vehicles with Hollywood ancestry.
Included in the process, the museum introduced a state-of-the-art “Alternative Power” gallery which will showcase past attempts at creating vehicles that run on electric power, such as natural gas, hydrogen, electric and more. It will also display contemporary efforts at driving the adoption of green energy sources.
Johnson Gray has teamed up with several such companies, including Agility Fuel Systems – a natural gas fuel system manufacturer for heavy-duty tricks, buses and specialty vehicles – as well as the University of California, Irvine, whose National Fuel Cell Research Center develops fuel cell technology to power vehicles.
