Clean Cities Georgia Transportation Summit Promotes Clean Transportation

The Clean Cities Georgia Transportation Summit, hosted in partnership with The Georgia Institute of Technology, Southface Institute, Georgia Power, Atlanta Gas Light, and Georgia Chamber, aims to build public-private partnerships and highlight the successes and benefits of clean transportation. The event will focus on various forms of clean fuels including biofuels, electric, hydrogen, natural gas, and propane.

The summit will feature expert panels and discussions on topics such as natural gas and renewable natural gas opportunities, current and future electric vehicle applications, working with the Department of Energy for federal funding, propane and renewable propane for resiliency, biofuels and sustainable aviation fuels, and current and future hydrogen applications.

Special guests at the event will include Jeff Marootian, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, and Carol Kemker, Deputy Regional Administrator for the EPA. The summit will also honor the 30th Anniversary of the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Clean Cities Network, with Clean Cities Georgia being the first coalition founded in 1993.

The summit will take place on September 27th at the Georgia Tech Exhibition Hall, followed by a reception. Tickets are available for $100, and there are multiple levels of sponsorship available. Registration can be done on the Clean Cities Georgia website.

In addition to the summit, Clean Cities Georgia, along with other organizations such as Atlanta Metropolitan State College, EV Club of the South, Archdiocese of Atlanta, and the Center for Sustainable Communities, will host a National Drive Electric Week Event on September 30th. The event will include an Electric Vehicle Festival at Atlanta Metropolitan State College, showcasing EVs of all makes and models. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to EV owners, enjoy food trucks, participate in kids’ activities, and join a parade to a Sustainability and Health Fair at a LEED Silver library. Visitors can also listen to speakers, enjoy live jazz music, and engage in crafts and other activities.

Clean Cities Georgia, a 501c3 non-profit organization, was founded in 1993 and is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Vehicle Technologies Office. The organization serves as a central coordinating point for all alternative fuels, vehicles, and infrastructure activities throughout the state.
