2019 Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Forum & Expo, UT Conference Center, Tuesday, 01. October 2019

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), and Tennessee Clean Fuels (TNCleanFuels) will hold the fifth annual Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Forum & Expo on October 2-3, 2019 at the UT Conference Center in downtown Knoxville, TN. The forum will highlight new research and technologies that improve transportation efficiency, reduce vehicle emissions, and address the mobility needs of all Tennesseans.
The forum will also honor winners of the 2019 Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Awards. These awards recognize outstanding initiatives to improve the efficiency, accessibility, affordability, and sustainability of transportation systems in the State, consistent with ongoing efforts to improve the health and well-being of Tennesseans, provide for a strong economy, and protect our State’s natural resources. Nominations for these awards are now closed.
In addition, the forum will feature an opportunity to ride and test drive various alternative fuel vehicles, as well as a recognition ceremony for a new class of certified Tennessee Green Fleets. Through Tennessee Clean Fuels' Tennessee Green Fleets Certification Program, any Tennessee-based fleet can apply for certification for its efforts toward reducing petroleum consumption, improving air quality, and increasing the use of alternative fuels or advanced vehicle technologies. Nominations for TNGreenFleets candidates are open until June 30, 2019. For more information, visit TNCleanFuels.org.
After the showcase, join us for the STFE Networking Reception while enjoying the panoramic views of the famous Knoxville Sunsphere.
