WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, March, 5, U.S. Secretary of Energy Secretary Steven Chu will deliver the keynote address at the Green Truck Summit at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana, during which he will discuss the Obama Administration’s investments in fuel-efficient technologies for commercial vehicles and truck fleets. The Green Truck Summit, held in conjunction with NTEA's The Work Truck Show, is known for offering cutting-edge solutions at the forefront of technology, and has become the leading educational forum on how the “green revolution” impacts vocational trucks. NTEA, the Association for the Work Truck Industry, represents nearly 1,600 companies that manufacture, distribute, install, sell and repair commercial trucks, truck bodies, truck equipment, trailers and accessories.
Later that morning, Secretary Chu will visit the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), where he will participate with university officials in an open press tour of one of the Department of Energy’s Industrial Assessment Centers, which received $1.3 million to train undergraduate- and graduate-level engineering students in manufacturing efficiency. The Energy Department announced last week that to date, the assessment centers across the country have helped participating manufacturers save more than $5.6 billion in energy costs.
While in Indianapolis, Secretary Chu will also meet with students and business leaders to emphasize President Obama’s commitment to an all-of-the-above energy strategy that reduces energy prices for American families and businesses by diversifying our transportation sector and investing in energy efficiency.
