DURHAM – North Carolina State University’s NC Clean Energy Technology Center is hosting its third annual Sustainable Fleet Technology Conference August 7-8 at the Durham Convention Center.

The event is an opportunity for fleet managers, state government leaders, nonprofit stakeholders, cleantech coalitions and trade organizations to share ideas and discuss the latest technologies in the field.

Sessions focus on sustainable fleet best-practices and opportunities presented by alternative fuels.

The two-day conference includes breakout sessions and panels covering a broad array of topics, from rural fleet operations to electric vehicle efficiency to propane and telematics to career development and the future of advanced transportation.

The keynote speakers are Mark Smith, technology integration program manager at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Office, and David Dunn, division manger of fleet and facilities management for the City of Orlando.

There are plenty of opportunities for networking between sessions. And on the evening of August 7, attendees can join as a group to attend the Durham Bulls baseball game.

On August 6, attendees can participate in pre-conference training events, including workshop on campus fleet sustainability and a seminar on the 100 Best Fleets. At 5 p.m., a reception will announce the winners of this year’s Green Fleet Awards and NC Smart Fleet Awards.
