CALSTART, the California operating division of WestStart, a North American advanced transportation technologies consortium, is creating an E-Truck Task Force (E-TTF) to accelerate the development of electric and zero-emissions medium-and heavy-duty vehicles.
CALSTART supports all clean fuels and technologies, and often creates targeted work in emerging sectors of our industry to provide focus and assistance to its growth. It did so with hybrid trucks, renewable natural gas, fuel cell buses, ethanol fueling stations, EV infrastructure and other segments.
The E-Truck Task Force (E-TTF) will include a cross section of fleet users (both those who have e-trucks and those considering purchase) and e-truck vehicle makers and suppliers. The E-TTF will identify key areas of needed action, develop joint industry approaches to address barriers and work collaboratively to help move the industry forward.
The E-TTF will meet periodically throughout this spring and summer, leading to a larger E-Truck Summit session on October 11th as part of the HTUF (Hybrid Truck Users Forum) 2012 National Conference in Baltimore.
