See zero-emission trucks in-person, join key discussions, hear analysis from global innovators about accelerating the zero-emission truck and bus segment

PITTSBURGH – One of the most overlooked solutions to the climate crisis zero-emission trucks and buses will be at the center of a number of high-level events in the lead-up to COP27 at the Global Clean Energy Action Forum (GCEAF) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on September 22-23. Top international climate and energy ministers like United States Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm and global innovation and business leaders will view and interact with zero-emission trucks, while they learn about and discuss how these vehicles can cut climate emissions, improve air quality, support jobs and make economic and operational sense for users. Leaders are expected to call for new commitments and immediate action to address rapidly growing transportation emissions at events co-hosted by the government of the Netherlands and CALSTART’s Global Commercial Vehicle Drive to Zero program and campaign (Drive to ZeroTM).
