2001 Windsor Workshop Announced

2001 Workshop in Windsor, Ontario to focus on transportation fuels and vehicle technology and the challenges that need to be overcome in order to bring those technologies into common use.

Published: 27-Mar-2001

Since 1983, Natural Resources Canada and the U.S. Department of Energy have hosted the annual Windsor Workshop. This Workshop brings together specialists involved with transportation fuels and vehicle technology, to discuss issues, raise questions and concerns and share knowledge and expertise.

Last year's 2000 Workshop reflected the world's growing concern with climate change, focusing on transportation fuels in the context of preserving our environment. Attendees discussed concerns about the refuelling infrastructure for alternative fuels and showed an overwhelming interest in fuel cell and hydrogen technologies. One hundred and sixty-three delegates from Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Japan, Netherlands, Sweden and the United States participated in the three day event.

This year's 2001 Workshop will be held from June 4 to 6 at the Cleary Centre in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, directly across the river from Detroit, Michigan. The program of the Workshop will continue to focus on transportation fuels and vehicle technology and the challenges that need to be overcome in order to bring those technologies into common use; it will also cover sessions on fleet management issues and the latest in lightweight vehicle material technology. The keynote speaker is Jim Motavalli, author of Forward Drive: The Race to Build "Clean" Cars for the Future, (published in 2000 by Sierra Club Books/Random House).
