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.
