Good Afternoon,


Registration for the February 20 Talking Freight seminar on An Overview
of the National Clean Fleets Partnership is now available. 


Date/Time: February 20, 2013 1:00 - 2:30 pm ET


Description: In recent years petroleum prices have risen to previously
unseen levels, putting increasing economic pressure on freight carriers,
including truck carriers, to find ways to operate more efficiently
and/or use cheaper fuels to enable themselves to reduce their fuel
spending. At the same time, both public sector governmental
organizations and the private sector carriers themselves have also been
working to find ways to reduce transportation emissions on a per vehicle
basis, both to protect and preserve the environment and to reduce
transportation spending. To address both of these goals, the U.S.
Department of Energy's (DOE) National Clean Fleets Partnership was
formed to allow the DOE to work with private freight carriers to find
ways to both reduce fuel spending and vehicular emissions. This webinar
will provide information about the National Clean Fleets Partnership
from both the public sector perspective and the private fleet carrier
