    Advice for Fleets from the Experts

    The LAF 2015 is hosted by Louisiana Clean Fuels in collaboration with the Southeast Louisiana Clean Fuel Partnership & sponsored by the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources.

    LOCATION CHANGE: Please note that due to road closures on the LSU Campus for the Taylor Swift concert, we had to move the event to the Capitol Park Welcome Center in downtown Baton Rouge. Parking in the Welcome Center garage is free to all attendees.

    We have a fantastic agenda and top-notch speakers to help public and private fleets reduce their fuel costs and make the switch to cleaner, cheaper domestic fuels. This conference is free and open to the public.
