Navigating Today's Challenges to Reach Tomorrow's Opportunities: Expanding the Market for Renewable Transportation
July 17, 2012 | 8:30am-6:30pm | Marriott Metro Center Hotel, Washington, DC
As the centerpiece of our Transportation Initiative, ACORE will convene our first Transportation and Renewable Energy Industry Forum on July 17, 2012 in Washington, DC to discuss the opportunities for expanding the market for renewable vehicles.
This forum is the first in a series of forums that will highlight the opportunities and challenges the country faces as it moves toward a 21st century transportation system sourced by renewable energy.
The forum's panelists will:
Discuss the state of the market for vehicles across the renewable technology spectrum, seeking to find common successes and identifying roadblocks to expanding the market share
Provide insight into the challenges that companies face in servicing the market and providing scalable solutions which enable the new, renewable technologies
Explore the diverse universe and discuss how collaboration between companies of varying size and different industries will be both required and beneficial
Detail lender expectations for financing renewable transportation projects and explore common pitfalls and barriers to financing these deals
Share understandings about how to manage public perception, consumer education, and media relations to successfully expand the market share for market-ready products
This event will kick start discussion on 21st century transportation and is the starting point for the process that will culminate in a 'roadmap' providing actionable steps for transitioning the nation to a renewable, multi-modal transportation system.
