California Leaders Form New Partnership to Develop a Transportation Energy "Action Plan"; Framework and Team to be Announced at CALSTART's "2020" Conference!
The Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 South Figueroa Street, Downtown Los Angeles, CA December 1, 2005, 8:30- 4:30
On a day devoted to prompting California action and leadership on transportation energy, a major announcement will be made regarding the formation of a new partnership with the explicit goal of increasing statewide transportation energy efficiency and alternative fuel use. The announcement will come during the second session of CALSTART's "2020: California's Transportation Energy Future" conference, which takes place this Thursday December 1, 2005 at the Los Angeles Convention Center ().
The partnership, comprised of public, private, and non-governmental stakeholders including former U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz, is based upon the principle that by becoming a model state for transportation energy consumption by 2020, California can become more secure, more prosperous, and improve the welfare of its people. This is the principle that guides the "2020" conference, which will also host a series of presentations and discussions by high-level speakers, including former CIA director James Woolsey, outlining the challenges and solutions ahead.
Also, the conference will display a series of high-efficiency and alternative fuel vehicles, including the: ALL NEW hybrid electric Honda Civic Biodiesel-powered Jeep Liberty Honda Civic GX natural gas vehicle and "Phill" home refueling system EDrive Prius plug-in hybrid DaimlerChrysler Orion VII hybrid electric transit bus GEM neighborhood battery electric vehicle DaimlerChrysler Fuel Cell Sprinter Van Honda FCX Fuel Cell Vehicle FedEx Express Hybrid Electric Delivery Van John Deere M2 Heavy Duty CNG Chassis and more!
With hundreds of policy makers, politicians, advocates, academics, industry representatives, and others in the audience, as well as the presentation of CALSTART's prestigious Blue Sky Awards at a mid-day luncheon, this will truly be a day not to be missed!
