Calstart, the California Energy Commission, and California Hybrid and Efficient Advanced Truck Research Center (Calheat) stakeholders are hosting a one-day interactive forum to exchange ideas on the policies driving zero emissions in Southern California and the nation. Among the topics on the agenda are clean technologies and fuels that will help get us there — particularly advanced hybridization and electrification — and projects already under way to achieve zero emissions in Southern California and other non-attainment metropolitan areas nationally, internationally.
The one-day forum is scheduled for Thursday February 17 at the Bannings’ Landing Community Center, 100 E Water Street, Wilmington (near the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach).
The Calheat Forum also will be an opportunity for attendees to provide input to the Calheat roadmap to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve fuel economy and attain zero emissions.
For registration information, contact Calstart at (626) 744-5600 or visit www.calstart.org
