The third Detroit Clean Fleet Technology Forum a collaboration hosted by Henry Ford Community College (HFCC) and the Clean Energy Coalition (CEC) will be Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 8:30 a.m. to noon in the Community Room of the SME Building, which is located next to the HFCC main campus on One SME Drive in Dearborn, Mich. This event is free and open to the public.
This forum will examine idle reduction technologies and fuel economy measures. Industry professionals will offer expertise and practical solutions to help local fleets reduce their operating costs, improve air quality and reduction of greenhouse gases.
The programs offered throughout the course include information on Detroit’s anti-idling ordinance; how to drive smart and save fuel; a focus on equipment, including auxiliary power units, low-resistance tires, and truck stop electrification; and support programs, including the CEC’s Detroit Area Clean Cities Program and Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision’s Healthy Business Program.
By the end of the forum, fleet managers and drivers will gain a greater understanding of:
- Detroit’s anti-idling ordinance;
- available equipment and technologies used to reduce fuel consumption;
- behavioral change to reduce fuel consumption; and
- national and local programs, grants, and loans.
The HFCC Energy Technology – Renewable Energy Program is designed to introduce students to the new emerging fields of Renewable/Alternative Energies. The program exposes individuals to the many new jobs that are opening in this field related to different types of non-traditional energy efficient power generation, heating and cooling and alternative automotive propulsion, “green” construction and energy related savings through better usage and design.
For further information about this event or the HFCC Energy Technology Program, call Greg Laskowsky of the HFCC Energy Technology Dept. at 313.317.1550, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
