GTSE to Host Alternative Fuels Workshops and Certifications


The organizers of the 2020 Green Transportation Summit & Expo (GTSE), taking place April 13 – 15, 2020, in Tacoma, Wash., are working with the Renewable Hydrogen Alliance (RHA) to offer the all-day Renewable Power to Clean Fuels Symposium on April 13, 2020, to discuss renewable hydrogen-related technologies, policy, commercial development and roles in decarbonizing the energy sector.

The Clean Fuels Symposium can be attended as a stand-alone event or purchased along with a full conference GTSE ticket for an additional fee.

For technicians, instructors and students GTSE is also offering a workshop entitled Method to Create an SAE Certification for Technicians Working with High-Voltage and High-Pressure Systems. This hands-on, half-day workshop will cover advanced vehicle high-voltage and high-pressure technician standards, training and national certifications, standards for autonomous vehicle systems, and identification of funding opportunities.

For those interested in transitioning fleets to electric, GTSE also offers a full-day Pathways to Electrification Workshop, where attendees will learn from industry experts and veteran fleet managers about important policy topics, factoring in disadvantaged communities, and considerations for supporting infrastructure. This workshop will feature representatives from transit fleets who will share their experiences in introducing electric buses into their fleets, a look into Women of Electric Vehicles, and a series of short tech talks by nationwide fleet experts.

Another addition to the 2020 GTSE pre-conference program is the DERA Grant 101 & Alternative Fuels 101 Workshop, which will provide an overview of all aspects of the alternative fuel industry, followed by an overview of DERA grants and rebates, including considerations for tribal and state applicants and the inclusion of VW settlement funds in DERA grants, with examples of successful projects presented by past grantees.

Pre-registration pricing is available through March 27. Ticket prices range from $50 – $399 and can be purchased here.
