Keeping It Real: Regional Haul, Zero-Emission, Heavy-Duty Tractors

Real-world data can predict future outcomes. After the Run on Less Regional event last October, the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) and other industry experts analyzed the data collected on the duty cycles from ten regional haul fleets. In two reports, these results were used to determine the suitability of battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell trucks for this essential and growing segment.

Join experts on Thursday, August 6 at 11 a.m. MST. 

Participants in this webinar will:

  • Hear the results from the Run on Less Regional event
  • Learn what is needed to adopt both battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell technologies for regional haul applications
  • Understand the opportunities and challenges in transitioning from a diesel truck to a zero-emission vehicle

Enhancing Federal Clean Energy Innovation

Join the National Academies for a series of virtual workshops on Enhancing Federal Clean Energy Innovation from July 27 – August 7.

A widespread and rapid transition to low-carbon energy by 2050 is essential to keep pace with ambitious policy goals and avoid the worst consequences of climate change. Historically, energy transitions have taken 50-100 years from initial breakthrough to widespread adoption, which means this transition must be implemented on a much shorter time scale.

The National Academies is convening a workshop series to examine barriers and highlight successful strategies for accelerating clean energy innovation across the federal government. These webcast events will feature timely, action-oriented assessments of how to strengthen demand for new clean energy technologies and facilitate cross-agency and cross-sector collaboration to solve today’s energy challenges. Sessions featuring clean energy innovation experts will be broadcast online from July 27 through August 7, with opportunities for audience Q&A participation.

The opening session will feature remarks and discussion from Paul Dabbar, Department of Energy Under Secretary for Science. The workshop series’ closing session will feature former Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz. 

Panel Dates, Topics & Speakers:

  • Monday, July 27 from 11am-1pm MST: The Imperative to Accelerate Energy Innovation
  • Tuesday, July 28 from 11am-12:30pm MST: Strategies for Acceleration: Strengthening User Pull
  • Wednesday, July 29 from 11am-12:30pm MST: Strategies for

UCC Statement of Solidarity in Racial Justice, Equity and Accessibility

UCC Statement of Solidarity in Racial Justice, Equity and Accessibility

Utah Clean Cities acknowledges and condemns racism, racially motivated violence and discrimination in all of its forms. We support and demand justice among communities of color, in Utah and nationwide. 

Systemic racism demands systemic solutions that are based on listening, learning, empathy, solidarity and action. No matter what lane we occupy in driving a sustainable future, we can and will find ways to center and support racial justice. The ongoing movement of social justice presents us with an opportunity to listen to one another, heighten our awareness, increase our compassion and heed the call to action that must happen now.

As an organization focused on transportation and sustainability, we want to ensure equitable access to resources for individuals from all communities that will lead to a positive change in the clean, safe and healthy communities that we all deserve.

We are committed to listening. We are committed to action. 

We are committed to being mindful of diverse voices in our workplace and elevating the voices of people of color.   We will engage with and listen intently to communities that have been marginalized by structural racism. We will provide decision-makers with up to date information and opportunities that promote social justice and equity and work in earnest to improve the economic opportunity of all Utahns. 

We are committed to providing free Idle Free materials and resources for all schools in Utah. We support students who want to contribute to the solutions for our changing climate by hosting their stories and art and helping them campaign at their schools for air quality and idle-free education. 

We are committed to providing strategies to transition to clean and renewable transportation systems in communities of color thus offering emission-free transport in areas that are most affected by Utah’s poor air quality.

We are committed to elevating the voices of people of color to make necessary systemic changes.
