Empire Clean Cities highlights advancements in alternative fuels


On Thursday, May 16th, 2019, Empire Clean Cities will be holding its 11th Annual Stakeholder Meeting at the Queens Theatre in Flushing Meadow Corona Park. This year’s Stakeholder meeting will focus on the advances and upcoming opportunities in the alternative fuels and technology industry. The Meeting will commence at 8AM and will end at 11:00AM. The event is free to attend and a light breakfast will be served.

The Stakeholder Meeting will showcase funding opportunities available to fleets and organizations (including the New York State Volkswagen Settlement Funding), feature advances in Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, the latest pilot projects for electrifying transit buses, and discuss fleet successes with biodiesel and bio-based products. The event will also honor Councilman Costa Constantinides for his continued commitment and legislative efforts for a more sustainable city. We look forward to his continued support and actions that help ensure cleaner air for the citizens of New York City and the Lower Hudson Valley.

Following the meeting; participants are encouraged to attend NYC Parks & Recreation 31st Annual Vehicle and Equipment Showdirectly outside Empire Clean Cities’ stakeholder meeting at the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Park, Queens, NY.
