CCIA and NACFE Announce 2019 Commercial Vehicle Cleantech Challenge Presenters

LAKEWOOD, Colo. - June 24, 2019 - PRLog -- Colorado Cleantech Industries Association (CCIA) and the North American Council for Freight Efficiency (NACFE) today announced the inaugural class of technology companies for the first Commercial Vehicle Cleantech Challenge (CVCC), comprising of eight companies from six U.S. states and Canada.

Building on the popularity of the Cleantech Challenge model of directly connecting industry to innovative technology solution providers, the CVCC is tackling the commercial vehicle industry.  The commercial vehicle industry is on the brink of exciting and impactful disruption in several technology sectors, including automation, electrification, hydrogen/fuel cells, connectivity, last mile productivity and more.

Program partners reviewed submissions, vetted applicants and ultimately selected eight finalists to present during the July program in Denver. Finalists will pitch their technologies to major commercial vehicle companies and investors.

Together with NACFE, CCIA developed the CVCC following the successful Oil & Gas and Mining Cleantech Challenge models (now in their sixth and third years, respectively) in partnership with an internationally recognized team of industry leaders, including Great Dane, UPS, Schneider Trucks, Kenworth, Xcel, Woodward, Toyota, Clean Cities, Rocky Mountain Institute, CALSTART and NREL.

Companies selected to present include:

American Intermodal Equipment Co. (dynaCERT)
Delivery Technologies LLC
Electriphi Inc.
Havelaar Canada Industrial R&D Laboratory Ltd.
Microgrid Labs
PADT, Inc.
Pareto Point Industries, Inc.

"Our team has been passionate about bringing cleantech solutions directly to industry representatives for years, however, the Commercial Vehicle Cleantech Challenge is especially near and dear to our hearts," said Shelly Curtiss, CCIA's executive director.

"We have been working in concert with some of these sponsoring organizations for years on cleantech and vehicle initiatives ranging from hydrogen fueling to personal vehicle electrification, and this program is a culmination of the dedication to the Challenges series and specifically to commercial vehicles."

The Commercial Vehicle Cleantech Challenge will be held on July 10, 2019, at the Governor's Residence in Denver, Colorado. A VIP reception will follow the private pitch sessions. Registration is open to the public for the VIP reception.
