First US-China Clean Truck and Bus Summit

31 October 2012

More than 120 attendees from leading US and Chinese clean truck and bus technology companies, together with representatives from key agencies of both governments, took part in the first US-China Clean Truck and Bus Summit in Beijing to help link US firms with Chinese partners and increase exports. The Summit was a first-of-its-kind event to link U.S. and Chinese companies specifically in clean fuels and technology for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, and is a key component of CALSTART’s overall US-China Clean Truck and Bus Technology Forum, supported in part by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA).

US industry Summit sponsors include Dow Kokam (energy storage), Navistar (truck and engine), Eaton Corporation (hybrid, electric, transmission), BAE Systems (hybrid, power management) and Wells Fargo (clean tech investment), together with Chinese industry sponsor Weichai Power (engine, hybrid, power generation).

Government attendees also come from a cross-section of agencies, including the US Department of Commerce, US Department of State, US Environmental Protection Agency, China’s Ministry of Science and Technology, Ministry of Environmental Protection, and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. In addition, transit operators from major Chinese urban centers took part in the event.
