Drive Clean Colorado hosted the first annual Drive Clean Summit & Expo on October 12 in Golden, Colorado in partnership with Jefferson County and the Jefferson County Sustainability Commission. This event brought together more than 200 stakeholders and partners interested in clean transportation, such as the Colorado Energy Office, Colorado Department of Transportation, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and a variety of municipalities and fleets from all over the state.

The Summit included several panels that covered topics like infrastructure and vehicle funding both in the state and nationally, a recap of the two-year anniversary of Drive Electric Colorado and provided opportunities for attendees to get their questions answered by the organizations leading the initiatives that are accelerating ZEV adoption throughout the state.

The event was a great opportunity for stakeholders to connect with others, learn from leaders in clean transportation and check out a variety of new vehicles and technology.

The indoor panels were followed by an outdoor expo, which included over 25 clean vehicles of all sizes, including an electric semi-truck, two fuel cell hydrogen cars, an electric street sweeper, multiple electric trucks, buses and cars and e-bikes.

Local Colorado media, including the Denver Gazette covered the event and took note of how clean vehicles and new models were a highlight but were not the only attraction of the event. Discussions around how to successfully transition service and delivery fleets from fossil fuels to clean alternative fuels took center stage, highlighting Drive Clean Colorado’s mission.
