ATRI Launches Application for Research Advisory Committee


ATRI has launched an online application for industry stakeholders interested in being considered for a position on ATRI’s Research Advisory Committee. ATRI’s RAC is comprised of government officials, academics, professional truck drivers, trucking company executives and suppliers from a diverse cross-section of the industry, all who understand the importance of sound science to an industry as complex as the trucking industry. The RAC is charged with annually recommending a research agenda for the Institute.


Since ATRI’s first RAC in 2002, over 220 individuals have been appointed to serve by ATRI’s Board of Directors. ATRI’s diverse portfolio of critical industry research is representative of the collective input of these engaged industry stakeholders who annually identify trucking’s top research needs.


The newly launched online application form allows individuals to indicate their interest in being considered and to more fully describe how their unique experience and perspective would contribute to the research identification process. Additionally, there is a separate form for individuals to nominate a colleague who they believe would be a strong candidate for the RAC.

Fleet Zero-Emission Resource Opportunity (Fleet-ZERO)


Colorado’s Fleet-ZERO grant program strategically addresses greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution from the fleet sector by funding electric vehicle (EV) charging to support the transition of light-, medium-, and heavy-duty fleets to electric vehicles. Fleet emissions have a disproportionate impact on public health and the environment, especially for marginalized and lower-income communities living near major roadways and facilities. The State’s Clean Truck Strategy and Community Access Enterprise identify fleet electrification as an important near term action to improve air quality and protect our environment, while also saving Colorado fleet owners and operators money on fuel and maintenance costs. 

Fleet-ZERO supports charging for fleet owners and operators seeking to electrify their vehicles, as well as public and semi-public fleet charging sites and providers offering EV charging-as-a-service to fleets. The program offers competitive grant funding with prioritized investments in disproportionately impacted communities and enhanced incentives for Qualifying Entities (please see Eligibility section below).

The current Fleet-ZERO standard application round will close on Friday, December 1, 2023 at 5:00 PM MT. The Fleet-ZERO rolling application is currently open year-round for Qualifying Entities requesting $50,000 or less in funding.
