Clean Vehicle Technology Objective of Green Truck Summit
Transportation has become one of the foremost contributors of global climate change. Studies show that nearly 23% of the total CO₂ emission originates from fossil fuel combustion such as biodiesel. The CO2 emission from road transport accounts for about 75% with an increasing share every day. It is a no brainer that about 95% of road transport depends on fossil fuel, corresponding to a staggering 60% of global oil consumption. With stakes such big, an alarming pressure is faced by the national governments worldwide to formulate polices to trim down greenhouse gas emissions and the rising oil demand and play their part.
What does this mean for the trucking industry? Devise such sustainable values and plans to transportation which will reduce the emission of green house gasses. “Green transportation” or “Sustainable Transport” is a strategy coined to search for such alternative fuels to manage the travel and shipping demands while keeping in mind its impact on the global climate changes. But where to begin with, what vehicle technology to opt for and how to go about doing so is the question that boggles most transport and freight companies. To learn about clean vehicle technologies to make environment eco-friendly and cost-effect, Green Truck Summit on March 1-3 2016 in Indianapolis, Indiana is the place to be at.
Organized by The Association for the Work Truck Industry (NTEA), the summit’s main objective will be to focus on sustainable vehicle technologies encouraging start-ups of green initiative for the present and the future and preview real-world insights on alternative fuels. The added advantage of the upcoming event will present attending guests the leverage to choose from more than 30 summit and Work Truck Show concurrent sessions, covering a multitude of topics.
Doyle Sumrall, the managing director of the NTEA holds the view that “In this industry, people are thinking decades out. This year’s summit is designed to help improve the decision implementation approach now and incorporate consideration of the exciting new technologies just around the corner,” He further added, “The Green Truck Summit is a must-attend event for representatives of all aspects of the work truck industry who want to get a handle on how productivity and efficiency technologies can impact their organizations today and into the future.”
The Green Truck Summit promises to bring together truck managers, fleet managers, distributors, dealers and service providers on a single platform to feature focused content on multi-stage commercial vehicles. Presenters will include Erin Gilchrist, the director of felt operations for Safelite AutoGlass, Sam Spofforth, executive director of Clean Fuels Ohio and George Survant, senior fleet director of Time Warner Cable.
The show will run from March 1-3 at the Indiana Convention Centre featuring the latest professional trucks and vehicle equipment in the market and the famous comedian Jay Leno as a keynote speaker to keep the impetus of the event interesting.
