Follow us… </li></ul>HTUF (the Hybrid Truck Users Forum) is a national, multi-year, user-driven program to speed the commercialization of medium- and heavy-duty hybrid and high-efficiency technologies. It is operated by CALSTART in partnership with the U.S. Army’s National Automotive Center (NAC), with project support from the Hewlett Foundation and the Department of Energy. HTUF has been very successful in helping launch the first production of hybrid trucks and is credited with cutting up to two years from product development. HTUF has helped create the first markets and is now working to get purchase incentive funding. <br />
