    • 10 a.m.-1 p.m. OR 1 -4 p.m.

Executive Order 80 calls for the State of North Carolina to protect its environment while growing clean energy technologies. Executive Order 246 updates North Carolina’s economy-wide carbon reduction emissions goals to align with climate science, reduce pollution, create good jobs and protect communities. EO 246 strengthens North Carolina’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing the statewide goal to a 50% reduction from 2005 levels by 2030 and achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible, no later than 2050.

In support of Executive Orders 80, 246 & 271, NCCETC is hosting Clean Transportation Demonstration Days to give government entities across North Carolina information and experience with clean transportation technologies. The day will consist of classroom instruction with real-world case study results, hands-on static review, networking, and a closed-course ride & drive for those who wish to participate. Classroom instruction will include alternative fuel options, telematics and other new technologies, safety, and more. There will be a diverse display of vehicles such as electric and alt-fuel vehicles, buses, police vehicles, and more.

To help minimize wait times during ride & drives, we are offering two sessions on each day to allow more people to participate in the Demonstration Days. You may choose to attend in the morning from 10 am to 1 pm or in the afternoon from 1 pm to 4 pm. Each session will begin with 1 hour of classroom instruction and then transition into the hands-on technology static review and ride & drive.

For any questions, contact Heather Brutz at hmbrutz@ncsu.edu or 240-281-0234 (cell).
