Diesel Generators Provide Mission Critical Power When You Need It the Most
September 18, 2014

Webinar - September 18, 2014 - 2:00-3:30pm

Diesel-powered generators can save lives during an emergency. Interruptions of electrical power, even of short duration, create situations that could imperil public health and safety. Blackouts also wreak havoc for businesses and create significant inconveniences for individuals. Emergency generators must be able to provide reliable, immediate and full strength electric power when there is a failure of the primary power supply system.

From hurricanes, floods, mud slides, to wild fires and tornadoes, frequent weather-related disasters call attention to the vulnerability of the nation's electrical grid and the importance of continuous electrical power. Weather events, both large and small, cut off power to hundreds of thousands of people and businesses for days exposing the importance of emergency back-up power as part of local, state and federal emergency preparedness, response and recovery.

This webinar is designed to provide a basic understanding of the issues surrounding the use of emergency back-up power systems, technology and fuel choices, operating conditions and incentives to provide critical electrical power.

Who should attend? Federal state and local policymakers, elected officials, emergency planners, building owners and operators and engineers, business owners, and insurance providers.

What will this webinar address?

  • What technologies are available to provide emergency back-up electrical power?
  • What are the differences between technologies?
  • What are the limitations on use of each of these technologies?
  • What are lessons learned in recent use of mobile and stationary back-up generators?
  • Are there incentives for building owners to install back-up generation capabilities?

National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Annual Legislative Summit August 12 - 15, 2013
Atlanta, GA

The Diesel Technology Forum was in Atlanta for the NCSL 2013 Legislative Summit to speak to the nation's state policymakers about clean diesel's role in powering their state's economy and to showcase how clean diesel delivers...more fuel-efficient vehicles with superior power and performance.

Attendees saw the all new 2104 Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel!  With 46mpg highway, the 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel boasts the best fuel economy of any gasoline or diesel car in America. It comes equipped with the very latest clean diesel technology which help reduce emissions without sacrificing power.

They also checked out the 2013 Volkswagen Passat TDI, that just set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® achievement in June 2013 for the "lowest fuel consumption - 48 contiguous U.S. states for a non-hybrid car" category with a stellar 77.99 mpg. The achievement also beats the hybrid vehicle record of 64.6 mpg by more than 13 mpg

The Forum also highlighed the growth in diesel car registrations, an increase of 24.3 percent in the U.S. from 2010 through 2012 following similar trends of double-digit diesel car sale increases throughout the country.
