Alternative Fuel Vehicle Expo in Richmond this Weekend 
Learn about the latest technology  
As a board member of the  Bay Area Air Quality Management District, I'm excited to tell you that the Air District is co-hosting an Alternative Fuel Vehicle Expo this Friday and Saturday at the Craneway  in Richmond. I'll be giving welcoming comments at Friday's session, which is oriented towards policymakers and elected officials.

The Expo will showcase an extensive collection of alternative technology vehicles including electric, hybrid electric, natural gas and hydrogen vehicles.  You'll get a chance to test drive one of them on Saturday, when the Expo is open to the general public.

The Governors of California and seven other states recently announced a plan to put 3.3 million zero-emission vehicles on the road over the next decade. The California Air Resources Board, on which I serve, has adopted rules requiring about 15% of new vehicles sold in California by 2025 to be zero-emission vehicles.

Expos like this will help us achieve those goals.

Saturday, March 15, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Expo is open to the public. You can check out cars, trucks and all kinds of green vehicles from numerous manufacturers. You can also learn about efforts to make it easier and more affordable to use zero or lower emission cars.

The Craneway is located at 1414 Harbour Way South, where the street meets the Bay.

In my roles on the Bay Area and state Air Boards, I'm helping to drive efforts to promote cleaner automotive technology, critical to cutting air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, linked to global warming.

California is a leader in this important transition, and I'm excited to be part of this effort.

Hope to see you this weekend!
