NEW: Quinsigamond Community College to Promote Alternative Fuel Vehicles

Tuesday, October 16, 2012


Students and faculty at Quinsigamond Community College will promote the future of fuel and advanced technology vehicles during the school's National Alternative Fuel Vehicle Day Odyssey event on Thursday.

The October 18 event will run from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. at the school's Burncoat Automotive Lab and is one of more than 160 outreach and education gatherings being held concurrently across the country and dedicated to promoting the use of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles.

“We are pleased to join Odyssey 2012 as we continue to drive change across America,” said Donald Morin, associate professor of Automotive Technology and program coordinator. “With our event we will spread the message of embracing alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles and commemorate Odyssey’s Decade of Difference.”

Quinsigamond’s Odyssey event will include hybrid and alternative fuel vehicle displays and information sessions on alternative fuels.

National AFV Day Odyssey was created by the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC), a program of West Virginia University, in 2002 and held every two years since.

Odyssey is comprised of numerous green transportation related events and hosted by NAFTC members, Clean Cities coalitions, and others who believe in cleaner, more energy efficient forms of transportation. These local events take place on a designated date every other year throughout the country.

The program is supported in part by funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, through a grant for the Advanced Electric Drive Vehicle Education Program. Honda and Toyota are 2012 national sponsors and longtime supporters of Odyssey, while AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps and West Virginia University are national partners of the event.
