The Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI) is hosting the National Alternative Fuel Day Odyssey on Wednesday, April 19, bringing together organizations working to advance alternative fuel vehicle technology and use.
Part of the event – from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the “parking circle” outside the main entrance to the Sustainability, Energy and Environment Complex (SEEC) – will include an Electric Vehicle Wired Workplace Award ceremony honoring CU Boulder’s Parking & Transportation Services, as well as an Alternative Fuel Vehicle Expo and Ride-n-Drive. Both are free and open to the public.
At the Ride-n-Drive, attendees will have the opportunity to check out and experience some of the newest car, bike and bus technologies, including the Nissan Leaf, BMW i3, a hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicle, both biodiesel and electric buses, electric bikes and more. (A valid license is required to test-drive some of the vehicles.)
The Wired Workplace Award, bestowed by Charge Ahead Colorado, recognizes leading organizations in Colorado for their dedication and commitment to electric vehicles, the environment, energy security and employees.
The odyssey event will continue for registered attendees, including presentations ranging from Refuel Colorado successes and driverless cars to the Road X program. Registration at Northern Colorado Clean Cities for the odyssey day, which will take place from 1 to 5:30 p.m. and is not free, is required.
Please consider using sustainable transportation to get to the event. From main campus, ride the Stampede or Discovery Express bus. Or, hop on your bike and park right in front of the SEEC building. Visitors and event guests in vehicles will be directed to available visitor parking.
