CALSTART to hold zero emission, low carbon bus workshop

Posted on March 3, 2010

CALSTART and Southern California Gas Co. have partnered to present a one day workshop on April 21 that will examine the latest technologies and clean fuels available for zero emissions and low carbon buses.

Key questions addressed at the workshop include: What is the status of these technologies and fuels? What are the technical and market challenges to full commercialization? What are the next steps needed to move them forward? These are the key questions to be addressed at this workshop.

Given the rapid changes in California's regulations, including AB 32 and the new proposals the state is considering for the Transit Bus Rule, this workshop is timely for fleet operators, bus makers, regulators, and propulsion system and subsystem providers.

Participants will get a first hand look at the timeline for fuel-cell buses and their projections for price reductions and full commercialization, a look at some new exciting battery electric bus technology being field tested, and hear about some truly new and very cost effective options to enhance the use of natural gas and natural gas refueling and electric recharging.

Only 100 seats are available. For more information, click here.
