The conference is an extension of the Clean Energy Coalition's Michigan Green Fleets initiative, a program that plans to place 270 alternative-fueled vehicles on the road, build 13 alternative fueling stations and train those associated with each project.
Fleet managers in attendance will learn about the various tax incentives and grants available to help pay for and maintain a more sustainable fleet. They will also have the opportunity to discuss clean energy issues and trends in an open forum with key industry leaders and Michigan Clean Cities Coalitions experts.
"Becoming more sustainable is a top priority of the Michigan fleet," said Chris Kowalski, NAFA Michigan chair. "Our creation of the Alternative Energy Conference is tangible proof of our dedication to becoming a national leader in clean energy implementation."
The following technologies and vehicles will be presented during the conference:
- Azure Dynamics hybrid electric buses and EV Transit Connect
- Chevrolet Volt
- DTE/MichCon compressed natural gas vehicles
- Parker Hannifin hydraulic hybrid technology
- Roush CleanTech propane technology
- Volkswagen TDI
