Utah Clean Cities is at the
Advanced Clean Transportation Expo!
Another successful ACT Expo event was held in April this year.

Each year your fellow coordinators participate as speakers and panel moderators and this year was not exception. With electric and hydrogen taking center stage this year; we look to the future of electrified and fuel cell technologies.

These fuels and engines offer clean emission solutions today whereas the electric medium and heavy duty fleets are not expected to hit the road in any capacity for almost ten years.

However, the excitement for these Tesla-inspired trucks are undeniable. And again, Clean Cities folks are at the forefront.
