Alternatively fueled vehicles focus of 'on-line conference.'

Is compliance with the Clean Air Act of concern to you and your local government? Need to learn more about the alternative technologies and fuels that hold the greatest promise for meeting recent legislative mandates and your community's environmental needs?

The National League of Cities and Public Technology, Inc. announce an innovative conference on issues vital to local governments as they begin formulating effective strategies to achieve targeted emissions reductions. EPA's Office of Research and Development is a co-sponsor of the event.

The time to register is now! Guess what? You can "attend" without leaving your home or office! Read on you will find out how.

This conference is an opportunity to:

[subsection] Answer your questions about the legislative mandates;

[subsection] Discuss fuel alternatives and technology options; and

[subsection] Decide whether this technology will work for your community.

Alternative Fuel Vehicles on Track

Three conference tracks are planned. The first, Legislative Mandates & Clean Air: The Time to Act is Now!, will clearly identify the principal federal, state, and regional/local clean air mandates likely to impact local governments. And because current legislation applies definite compliance timetables, you will need this essential information.

Track two, Fuel Alternatives, Technology Options: What's Best for You?, is central to the theme of alternative approaches to cleaning our nation's air. The capabilities of the more viable fuels and technologies--reformulated gasoline, methanol, ethanol, liquid petroleum gas, compressed natural gas, and electricity--will be addressed to help you align fuel characteristics with your local needs. Key motor vehicle issues such as availability, testing, and best-case conversion options are to be presented as well.

The third track, Convergent Opportunities: Breaking Through Market Barriers, covers primary market considerations of alternative fuel/technology selection and implementation. Questions of basic supply and demand, the institutional environment of alternative fuel vehicles, infrastructure needs, and market opportunities will be examined.
