Truck manufacturers are going to Canberra to promote alternative energy to the nation's politicians.

The seminars, on September 16 and October 28, will provide parliamentarians and relevant staff with information on the latest natural gas, ethanol and hybrid truck technologies.

For the first session, to be hosted by Martin Ferguson, Minister for Resources, Energy and Tourism, will see presentations by the CEOs of Isuzu, Iveco, Kenworth, Mack and Scania presenting the environmental benefits of using compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG) and ethanol as an alternative fuel.

They will also outline the experiences and research gained from trials conducted on alternative fuelled fleets around Australia and overseas.

During the October session, the CEOs of Hino, Volvo and Fuso will speak on the experiences of their companies, locally and overseas, around the introduction of hybrid drive technologies.
