FARMINGTON HILLS, MI - The Green Truck Summit returns to the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN, March 5 to 6, 2012. At the Summit, fleet managers and other work truck industry professionals learn about the latest advancements in clean vehicle technology and how "going green" can improve fuel efficiency, reduce costs, and help meet new regulations while also mitigating a fleet's environmental impact.
The Green Truck Summit is considered the country's leading educational forum on "green" insights and initiatives for the work truck industry. Jointly produced by NTEA, the Association for the Work Truck Industry, and CALSTART, the Summit is held in conjunction with The Work Truck Show 2012, which runs March 6 to 8, 2012. Educational programming begins March 5.
Technical experts, government officials, industry leaders and early adopter fleet managers come together at the Green Truck Summit to unveil recent developments in sustainable technologies and new commercial truck applications. Presenters share practical advice on fuel efficiency, firsthand information on building green fleet programs, and critical advances in engine and fuel technology.
"Exciting developments are underway for going green in the work truck industry," says Doyle Sumrall, NTEA senior director of business development. "It is critical now more than ever for fleets, government agencies and the dealers and distributors that support them to understand these new technologies. The Green Truck Summit provides a truly unique experience for learning, sharing knowledge and identifying solutions with key players and industry leaders."
The Green Truck Summit includes 22 breakout sessions, five general sessions and two keynote addresses over a day and a half. A complete Green Truck Summit schedule is available online at www.ntea.com/greentrucksummit/schedule.
Green truck technology is also highlighted in several other areas of the Work Truck Show, such as the CALSTART Clean Technologies and Fuels Pavilion. In addition, exhibitors with products that improve fuel utilization, are environmentally friendly, use recycled materials and/or support environmentally sustainable practices are profiled throughout the hall as part of the Green Product Showcase. The Green Truck Ride-and-Drive once again offers Show attendees the opportunity to test-drive (for free) commercial vehicles that incorporate new hybrid technology or alternative fuel applications.
