Welcome from Clean Energy Dear Conference Participants: Welcome to the 2011 Alternative Clean Transportation Expo. We are delighted to host this forum along with our co-sponsors to share the latest news about America’s transition to natural gas — the next transportation fuel. In the United States, transportation accounts for over 60% of petroleum use, and over 60% of petroleum is imported. This foreign oil costs America more than $500 billion annually; many rank this practice as the greatest transfer of wealth in economic history. Of the total oil imported, about one-third comes from OPEC countries. Transportation industry leaders increasingly recognize that America needs to quickly reduce its dependence on foreign oil while simultaneously reducing greenhouse gases and urban pollution. Simply stated, natural gas is cheaper, cleaner, abundant and American. We have tremendous natural gas reserves in the United States and Canada. Oil and natural gas experts are projecting that we have enough domestically available natural gas to meet our needs for 150 years. In addition to traditional exploration and production, we are now generating renewable natural gas from landfills, dairy farms and sewage treatment plants.
It’s clear that with natural gas we can move our country towards energy independence, while cleaning the air, reducing our carbon footprint, and most importantly, saving money. Natural gas is substantially cheaper than diesel and gasoline. In fact, natural gas is the least cost alternative available today. Fleets can significantly reduce fuel budgets with savings at as much as $2.00 per gallon — and the economics will get better as diesel and gasoline prices continue their upward spiral. Finally, let’s remember the business imperative for sustainability and reduced environmental impact. Using America’s fuel accomplishes both, but it also keeps American dollars at home while creating jobs and economic prosperity. This is the solution for America. The conference this year has assembled an outstanding gathering of industry experts. I encourage you to tap this expertise so that you can discover how natural gas vehicles will work for your fleet. Millions of natural gas vehicles are operating in other countries around the world. It is time for the United States to realize the cheaper, cleaner, abundant, and American benefits of natural gas. Good luck and I hope you enjoy the conference. Sincerely,
James N. Harger Chief Operating Officer

8:45 a.m. Plenary Session #2: An Executive Roundtable Discussion, “Getting to Zero: Criteria Pollutants, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and Fuel Use Reductions” Rising fuel prices, energy security and greenhouse gas emissions are among the key topics that have recently dominated transportation headlines. With U.S. EPA planning to issue revised ozone standards in the summer of 2011, the number of counties in North America designated as non-attainment status could increase by as much as 73 percent. This opening plenary session reminds stakeholders that the future marketplace for zero and near-zero emission alternative fuels and technologies will play a critical role in meeting federal, state and regional air quality attainment standards. The panel will discuss the challenges, opportunities and synergies presented via overlapping emission and energy policies.

Our mission is to develop the market for biodiesel through education, outreach, and advocacy while providing is member-owners with access to a high quality, more sustainable, B99 biodiesel developmental fuel. We do so by operating a system of small mobile bulk storage facilities and incorporating our members as an approved “fleet”. Members draw down fuel as needed, based on a allotment set-aside, much like having a savings account at a credit union, but with fuel instead of money on deposit. We also advocate for local fleet operators (such as public works maintenance districts, schools and trucking firms) to switch to approved biodiesel blend B20 fleet fuel. In either case, our goals are the same: to demonstrate a regional market for high-quality, locally produced biodiesel; and, to induce brick and mortar fuel stations to start selling biofuels. We encourage people in other areas who are interested to organize their own “grange”, and sponsor a similar facility for their community. biodiesel-coop.org

The California County Fleet Managers Association (CCFMA) is an organization designed to help public-sector fleet professionals perform their duties in the most effective way possible. By sharing the wisdom, knowledge and experience of the entire membership, fleet related issues are tackled “collectively.” This combined “brain trust” of the membership is a powerful tool that CCFMA members have at their disposal at all times. CCFMA members discuss issues and develop solutions, and often the solution that works for one County/Jurisdiction can be applied to many others. CCFMA is open to not only California Counties, but any California city as well. Public-sector fleet professionals all face the same or similar issues…why not work together as a team to solve them? That is what the California County Fleet Managers Association does best! www.ccfma.org

California Electric Transportation Coalition (CalETC)
CalETC is a non-profit association promoting clean air and working to combat climate change through the use of electric transportation. Over the last 15 years electric off-road equipment has become commonplace with forklifts, airport equipment, lawn equipment and other types of off-road equipment transitioning to clean electricity. This transition has resulted in significantly lowering the use of petroleum in these various categories, paving the way for the next wave of on-road large-scale deployment of electric vehicles. With every major auto maker announcing production or upcoming production of some manner of electric vehicle, California is poised to continue to lead the transition of the transportation sector away from petroleum and towards electricity. CalETC will continue to support all aspects of the transition to electric transportation, working closely with our government, environmental, and industry partners to ensure success. www.caletc.com
California Energy Commission
The California Energy Commission is the state’s principal energy planning organization.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) has been identified as the most important purchase criteria for professional fleets. Fleets using TCO often outperform non-TCO fleets in cost performance, and have the highest potential to achieve significant reductions in fuel consumption and emissions. There are two main challenges for a fleet to integrate TCO; complexity and accuracy. Integrating and maintaining the data in a TCO database is a time-consuming task. The bigger issue for TCO is the your mileage may vary issue, meaning that a key cost in the TCO calculation is highly variable. Fleets currently use government reported mileage or historical costs using old technology, which results in incorrect and costly TCO decisions. FleetCarmaTM solves this problem in a simple and accurate way. FleetCarmaTM combines simple data-acquisition on a fleetâ€™s current vehicles with a proven vehicle modeling platform to enable accurate and actionable TCO. The end result is world-class fleets that can minimize the total cost of operating their fleet while drastically reducing their emissions in the most cost-effective way.

The West Coast Collaborative (Collaborative) is an ambitious partnership between leaders from federal, state, and local government, the private sector, and environmental groups committed to reducing diesel emissions along the West Coast. Partners come from all over Western North America, including California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Nevada, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico. To accomplish its goal of creating, supporting and implementing diesel emissions reductions projects, the Collaborative: raises awareness of the need for diesel emissions reductions and the many highly successful state, tribal, local, and regional efforts that promote and support voluntary projects; creates a forum for information sharing among diesel emissions reductions advocates, and works to leverage significant new resources to expand voluntary diesel emissions mitigation efforts; and implements projects that are regional in scope, leverage funds from a variety of sources, achieve measurable emissions reductions, and create momentum for future diesel emissions mitigation efforts. www. westcoastcollaborative.org
