Staff Report From Savannah CEO

Monday, September 30th, 2019

Georgia Tech-Savannah is excited to give members of the Coastal Georgia communities an up-close look at various low-emission and zero-emission vehicles. The 9th Annual Clean Energy Roadshow will make its stop in Savannah at the Georgia Tech Savannah Campus, 210 Technology Circle, Savannah, GA 31406, on Tuesday, October 8th from 9 am to noon.

Attendees will have an opportunity to take a walking tour of alt-fuel cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles. The Roadshow is traveling across the state, starting in Atlanta and hitting Augusta, Albany, Savannah, and Macon.

In 2011, Georgia Public Service Commission Vice Chairman Tim Echols wanted to find a way to highlight trends in alternative-fuel-vehicle technology, transportation, mobility and sustainability. The Clean Energy Roadshow was born. At the Roadshow’s seminar, experts discuss how rural and urban communities use – or could benefit from the use of – electric, propane and natural gas vehicles in private and commercial transportation. They also discuss how fleets can make informed decisions. Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) President, Larry Williams will also give an update on the state of the industry in Georgia’s technology sector.

Along with panels on electric vehicles, propane autogas and natural gas vehicles, we will also have featured speakers: Richard Simmons, PhD (Director, Energy Policy and Innovation Center – Georgia Tech) and Kevin Smith, P.E., CFM, (Thomas & Hutton).

The event is free and open to the public but registration is required. For more information and to register, visit
