When it comes to the challenges of transportation emissions and climate change, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and fleets are on the first line of defense. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the transportation sector generates the largest share of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the U.S., accounting for over 28% of emissions.
With the clock ticking on aggressive new vehicle emissions standards and climate goals, OEMs and fleets are considering a number of options to tackle the GHG challenge. To discuss the challenges, Steve Howell, Senior Technical Advisor for Clean Fuels Alliance America, moderated a panel at the Clean Fuels Conference with several OEMs and fleet managers. Joining him were: Mark Jamieson, Cummins Alternative Technologies; Ivan Tate, FPT INDUSTRIAL; Venu Gupta, John Deere Power Systems; Keith Kerman, City of New York, NY; and Mahanth Joishy, City of Madison WI.
