Houston-Galveston Area Council’s Annual CFTC
The Houston-Galveston Area Council will hold its ninth annual Clean Fleet Technologies Conference on June 5. CFTC is part of the H-GAC Clean Cities/Clean Vehicles Program, and will help spread the word on “how alternative fuels can improve regional air quality and save money.”
“As the trend for alternative fuels grows and businesses find ways to stay sustainable,” H-GAC says, “there is clearly an alliance between clean energy and effective business.”
CFTC 2013 will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Sugar Land Skeeters Constellation Field in Sugar Land, Texas, immediately southwest of Houston.
The conference provides an open forum for more than 200 transportation professionals to discuss challenges and opportunities of the industry via panel discussions, workshops, clean vehicle displays and ride and drive demonstrations.
Dan Frakes, manager of advanced technology and vehicle fuels policy for the Public Policy Center of General Motors, will deliver the keynote address.
Other speakers include
- City of Sugar Land Mayor James Thompson,
- H-GAC executive director Jack Steele,
- Frank Chapel, director of natural gas transportation fuels for Apache Corp, and
- Bob Lukefahr, Co-CEO of Nat-G CNG Solutions.
