Collaboration. Decision. Action. The High-Efficiency Truck Users Forum represents the process for making change happen in the high efficiency truck and bus arena. The HTUF 2014 National Meeting is built around action, engagement, and collaboration. Industry and military thought leaders will gather to identify and address the barriers to the adoption of high-efficiency truck and bus technologies. Join us at this hands-on forum for action – engage in HTUF’s ongoing process.
The High-Efficiency Truck Users Forum (HTUF) is operated by CALSTART in partnership with and under contract to the US Army TARDEC National Automotive Center (NAC). The Army wants to ensure that future product offerings are capable of meeting high-efficiency military needs at a reasonable acquisition price. HTUF facilitates a unique collaboration between fleets, truck, and bus OEMs, suppliers, military, policy makers, and other stakeholders, bringing them together for a single mission: accelerating commercialization of high-efficiency technologies for heavy-duty vehicles. Action-oriented industry working groups are formed to remove barriers and drive greater adoption of new technologies. Using high impact industry forums, ride & drive events, policy initiatives, and new technology deployment, HTUF helps to increase early fleet customer acceptance and speed high-efficiency vehicle technologies to market. We are also focused on expanding high-efficiency vehicle purchase incentive programs to new states and areas
