Clean Cities to Showcase Transportation Successes at 2013 Work Truck Show

February 26, 2013

Clean Cities coordinators will host a poster session at NTEA's annual Work Truck Show, to be held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, March 5 and 6. The session will showcase transportation projects from communities across the country, where fleets and other stakeholders have successfully deployed alternative fuels, advanced vehicles, and other strategies to reduce petroleum use.

Posters will be on display during the show's Green Truck Summit, in the reception room outside the 500 Ballroom at the following times:

  • 7 a.m. to 6:15 p.m., Tuesday, March 5
  • 7 a.m. to 11 a.m., Wednesday, March 6

Clean Cities coordinators will be on hand to discuss their projects and answer questions for one hour immediately before each Green Truck Summit morning meeting session, as well as during breaks in the agenda.

"This poster session will give fleet managers the opportunity to learn about successful, real-world approaches to cutting petroleum use and emissions," said Sandra Loi of the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory. "They'll also be able to find out how to connect with their local Clean Cities coalitions, and how these coalitions can provide assistance in the adoption of alternative fuels and advanced vehicles."

Clean Cities advances the nation's economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to reduce petroleum use in transportation. A national network of nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions brings together stakeholders in the public and private sectors to deploy alternative and renewable fuels, idle-reduction measures, fuel economy improvements, and emerging transportation technologies.
