Westport Innovations Goes Global


In the following video, Motley Fool energy contributor Tyler Crowe talks with energy analyst Joel South about Westport Innovations  and the co-marketing agreement it has just signed with Chinese company Enn Group. The company is similar to Clean Energy Fuels in that it is working in China to pioneer the natural gas fueling infrastructure, something that pairs well with Westport's natural gas engines. Tyler tells investors why, due to China's weak domestic oil sources and massive natural gas reserves, there may be even stronger motivation in that country to shift transportation to natural gas than there is in the U.S.

As the most advanced designer of engines powered by natural gas, Westport Innovations is a small company with a big goal: to lead the world in transitioning away from traditional oil-based fossil fuels in favor of abundant, cheap, and clean natural gas. The company has a price tag large enough to match its ambition and will need to grow revenue quickly in order to justify sky-high expectations.
