The Rudin Center for Transportation invites you to its upcoming conference, "Alternative Fuel Vehicles Technologies & Infrastructure - Bringing innovation to our streets," that will be held on June 14, 2011 at the NYU Kimmel Center. With the transportation sector as one of the fastest growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions, there is increased public interest in finding cleaner mobility options, including the use of alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) technologies.

Co-sponsored by Con Edison, the New York State Department of Transportation and the New York State Energy and Research Authority, this event seeks to contribute to the public’s understanding of AFV current technologies and innovations, by analyzing their strengths, limitations and the required infrastructure for their broad deployment. Speakers will discuss market conditions and current challenges in promoting these new technologies, including infrastructure investments. The closing panel will discuss policies and strategies that foster the broad deployment of AFV technologies in the United States.
