Clean Transportation Demonstration Day – Concord

October 8 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

Tuesday, October 8 | 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Charlotte Motor Speedway, 5555 Concord Pkwy S, Concord, NC

Executive Order 80 calls for the State of North Carolina to protect its environment while growing clean energy technologies. The order “affirms North Carolina’s commitment to reducing statewide greenhouse gas emissions to 40% below 2005 levels, calls for a 40% reduction in energy consumption in state-owned buildings, and calls for an increase in registered, zero-emission vehicles (“ZEVs”) to at least 80,000 – all by year 2025.”

Join the NC Clean Energy Technology Center and Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition for a Clean Transportation Demonstration Day! The event supports Executive Order 80 and gives 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 product static review, networking, and a closed-course ride and 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 including a Nissan LEAF, Chevrolet Bolt, Chrysler Pacifica, police vehicle and fire truck, Zero Motorcycle and more.

Lunch will be provided. Please be sure to register if you plan to attend.

Note: The event is only open to government entities and utilities.
