Moving Ahead 2010

Greater Ohio Policy Center has been pleased to be involved in planning the upcoming Ohio State University/Clean Fuels Ohio Moving Ahead 2010 Conference on May 2 – 4, 2010, which will bring together transportation and energy leaders from industry, research, government, non-profit organizations and education to continue the conversations and build momentum that will foster the actions we need for our transportation future. Whether you are interested in electronic vehicle technology or developing sustainable communities there are sessions and national experts to challenge and educate you.  Speakers include representatives from Smart Growth America, the Center for Neighborhood Technology and the Urban Land Institute as well as representatives from charging companies like AeroVironment, Better Place, and Plug Smart, and energy companies such as ITC, Duke, and AEP.  Ford, Nissan, Toyota, Bright Automotive and other auto companies will also be on hand to talk about their plans to plug in America’s drivers.

Because of our involvement, we are able to offer you a special 50% discount to attend the conference, which will bring the price of registration down to $100.  To receive the discount, visit the Moving Ahead 2010 registration page.  Once you chose an option on the next page, it will show the shopping cart at the top and the regular registration fee. Simply enter the code TOP50 (all caps) in the “Discount Code” box and click on “Update Cart.”  Your registration fee will update at that point, and you can proceed with the rest of the registration process.

Greater Ohio, as part of our recently report Restoring Prosperity: Transforming Ohio’s Communities for the Next Economy, recommended a host of state policy changes around developing more comprehensive transportation options and planning to ensure that both people and goods are moved efficiently while recognizing its impacts on the global challenge of climate change. We look forward to addressing these issues as well as learning from national experts as part of this conference.
