Perkins will take the virtual stage at 11 a.m. Eastern on April 20. Titled “Accelerating Decarbonization with Propane School Buses,” Perkins’ address will detail why more than 1,000 school districts across the country are investing in propane autogas to provide a clean, safe ride to school for their students without sacrificing the performance, affordability and reliability required of a school bus, according to PERC. Perkins will also compare propane autogas buses to other alternative energy solutions and detail how propane autogas school buses are the best option to accelerate the decarbonization of the school transportation market fastest.

The three-day virtual conference boasts a variety of training and educational opportunities for attendees on the latest advancements in green bus technology and alternative energies for the school transportation industry.

In addition to the keynote address, the Propane Council will host two more virtual sessions for attendees. “A Key Energy for a Low-Carbon Future” will be held at 1:50 p.m. Eastern on April 20, and a virtual alternative roundtable discussion titled “A+ Fuel for School Transportation” is scheduled for 3 p.m. Eastern on April 21, featuring three school transportation directors finding success with propane autogas school buses.
