12/6/22 Zoom Meeting: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of the Future of Connecticut Medium and Heavy Duty Trucks and their Fuels - Co-sponsored by Capitol Clean Cities and CT Southwestern Clean Cities
There are more than 145,000 medium and heavy duty vehicles registered in Connecticut. These trucks, and to a smaller extent, buses and vans, make our lives possible. What they move is what we need.

While these vehicles currently produce an outsized amount of harmful pollution, emerging technologies and vehicles can guide us to cleaner-fueled vehicles, more comfortable to drive, and with reduced maintenance needs.

How and when we will transition to this future is the question that will land on every Connecticut fleet owner and manager’s already-overflowing desk. And it is important that the people running today’s fleets can weigh in.

This one-hour Zoom meeting will:

> present the carrots and sticks the State of Connecticut is planning to guide this transition
> offer some insights from existing fleet owners and managers - and hopefully, you!
> point fleet owners and managers to existing resources
> prioritize areas where fleet owners could use additional assistance

This event is hosted by Greater New Haven Clean Cities, a non-profit designated by the U.S. Department of Energy to promote cleaner fuels (including electric, hydrogen, natural gas, and propane) and technologies for transportation. We provide education and technical assistance, and act as an intermediary between vehicle owners and managers and policymakers, vehicle makers, and technical experts at the Department of Energy’s national labs.
