Glimpse the future of clean energy for work trucks at the Green Truck Summit in Indianapolis

PR Newswire — February 7, 2017

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — What does “clean energy”
mean for work trucks in 2017 and beyond? The answers can be found at the Green
Truck Summit, the industry’s premier alternative fuels and advanced technology
conference held in conjunction with The Work Truck Show® 2017 in Indianapolis,
Indiana, next month. Fleet managers, truck equipment distributors, upfitters and
truck dealers from throughout the region and around the world learn the clean
energy developments and decisions shaping the journey toward the goal of
zero-emission transportation, and the future of the work truck industry, at this
annual event.

Produced by NTEA – The Association for the Work Truck Industry, the Green Truck
Summit takes place at the Indiana Convention Center. It kicks off March 14 at
8:30 a.m. with opening remarks and a keynote address; followed by general
sessions that run through 5 p.m. Lunch and a networking reception are included.
The Work Truck Show 2017 runs March 14-17. Educational sessions begin March 14,
and the exhibit hall is open March 15-17.

“The objective of the Green Truck Summit is to bring together the top people who
are leading the thinking and decision-making about clean energy technologies and
fuels, so they can share their thoughts with the industry and generate some real
dialog that will help move things forward,” says Doyle Sumrall, NTEA managing
director. “Selecting clean technologies and fuel investments are challenging
long-term commitments, and many operational decisions have to align with these
decisions. When you factor in the unknowns of the longevity of low fuel costs
and a new U.S. administration, this year’s Green Truck Summit will be more
impactful, informational and fascinating than ever.”

The Green Truck Summit 2017 begins with a keynote address by Dr. Wilfried
Achenbach, senior vice president of engineering and technology for Daimler
Trucks North America.

“Dr. Achenbach is Daimler’s leading authority for technology and truck
development, so how he sees the truck industry moving over the next couple of
decades is going to be enormously insightful,” noted Sumrall.

Green Truck Summit general sessions will cover subjects including:

— Government objectives for zero-emission transportation and outlook on
future policies.
— Fuel and technology options paving the path to zero-emission commercial
— The effects of Phase Two greenhouse gas regulations.
— Renewable fuels analysis and vehicle life cycle impacts.
— New products and technology applications for fuel use and emissions
Green Truck Summit attendees can choose from a wide range of concurrent
educational sessions over the following two days, March 15-16. Presenters
