CARB Chair Liane Randolph to Keynote Green Truck Summit 2022

Green Truck Summit will be held March 8 at JW Marriott Indianapolis, adjacent to the convention center.

Liane Randolph, chair of the California Air Resources Board (CARB), will deliver the keynote address at Green Truck Summit, a full-day program in March focused on clean energy trends for commercial vehicles held as part of Work Truck Week 2022. John Davis, creator, host and executive producer of MotorWeek, returns as emcee. New this year is a full slate of short breakout sessions in the afternoon. 

Work Truck Week, North America’s largest work truck event, runs March 8–11, 2022, at Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. Green Truck Summit will be held March 8 at JW Marriott Indianapolis, adjacent to the convention center. Education sessions run March 8–10 and the exhibit hall is open March 9–11.

Green Truck Summit brings together government, educators, fleets and innovators to provide updates on the work truck industry’s path to zero emissions. Sessions offer operational insights for vocational truck fleet managers, as well as perspectives on the evolution of commercial vehicles and advanced technology development. 

“In order for the work truck industry to prepare for the next five years, it’s crucial to understand how CARB emissions and fuel-consumption-reduction plans impact second-stage manufactured vehicles,” explains Kevin Koester, NTEA senior director. “As CARB chair, Randolph is uniquely qualified to discuss how the industry can support the decision-making process for upcoming guidelines while also preparing for the transition to zero-emission vehicles over time.”

Green Truck Summit starts at 8:30 a.m. Randolph takes the stage at 8:40 a.m. and is followed by additional general sessions “How Hydrogen and Fuel Cells will Affect Work Trucks, U.S. Department of Energy Updates” and “Global Influences on Green Vehicle Technology.” Later in the afternoon, registrants can choose from four blocks of 20-minute breakout sessions on topics such as:

  • How key industry segments are driving toward zero emissions
  • Electric vehicle (EV) grants and programs
  • EV maintenance
  • Green product updates. 

The day concludes with a reception from 4–5 p.m. Lunch is also included.
