Sept. 30, The U.S. Department of Energy launched the 2008 Clean Cities National Alternative Fuel Vehicle Day Odyssey, also known as Odyssey Day. The day was celebrated in Washington D.C., and embarked a nationwide symposium of 80 events dedicated to promoting the use of petroleum-free fuel that will take place over the next few months. Events are happening in over 60 locations and range from ride-and-drive events to public forums.
The Clean Cities partnership consists of 86 coalitions working with 5,700 local stakeholder programs. Clean Cities has helped reduce the use of petroleum-fuel by 2 billion gallons; put more than half a million alternative-fuel vehicles on the road; and contributed to the construction of more than 3,000 alternative refueling stations across the country.
I couldn’t find where the events will be, but with 86 coalitions, chances are good there will be one in your state.
