Event description

Description

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT), and Tennessee Clean Fuels (TNCleanFuels) will hold the fifth annual Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Forum & Expo (STF&E) on October 1-2, 2019 at the UT Conference Center in downtown Knoxville, TN. The forum will highlight new research and technologies that improve transportation efficiency, reduce vehicle emissions, and address the mobility needs of all Tennesseans. Panelists and speakers from across the country will highlight best practices to transform transportation systems efficiently, affordably, and sustainably. An agenda for the 2019 STF&E will be made available soon.

Each year, STF&E features an alternative fuel vehicle and equipment showcase as well as a luncheon that honors both winners of the Tennessee Sustainable Transportation Awards (TSTAs) and new inductees to the Tennessee Green Fleets (TGF) Certification program. STF&E attendees can also enjoy an evening networking reception at the famous Knoxville Sunsphere as part of the event.

The TSTAs, organized by TDEC and TDOT, recognize outstanding initiatives to improve the efficiency, accessibility, affordability, and sustainability of transportation systems in the state, consistent with ongoing efforts to improve the health and well-being of Tennesseans, provide for a strong economy, and protect and enhance our state’s natural resources. TSTA nominations are due by June 14. Submit nominations at www.tn.gov/environment/TSTA.

Through TNCleanFuels' TGF Certification Program, any Tennessee-based fleet can apply for certification for its efforts toward reducing petroleum consumption, improving air quality, and increasing the use of alternative fuels or advanced vehicle technologies. TGF nominations are due by June 30. For more information, visit TNCleanFuels.org.

Finally, STF&E organizers are currently soliciting proposals for a poster display session during the event. Posters should highlight projects or research that can improve transportation efficiency, reduce vehicle emissions, and address the mobility needs of Tennesseans. Proposals should be no more than 300 words and may be submitted by any entity so long as the summarized projects and/or research pertains to actionable sustainable transportation solutions. Presenters should be prepared to speak about their projects with event attendees in a dedicated poster session. All poster presenters will receive free STF&E registration.

Poster proposals must be sent to TDEC.OEP@tn.gov by Thursday, July 18 for consideration at the 2019 forum. Selected poster presenters will be notified by August 1 of their acceptance and will be given further instruction at that time for final poster creation.
