Morgantown, W.Va. — The eighth installment of National Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Day Odyssey, the nation’s largest alternative fuel vehicle awareness event, will be held on April 20, 2017. The National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) is actively seeking Odyssey event hosts, partners, and sponsors.
National AFV Day Odyssey is a nationwide celebration created by the NAFTC to promote the use of, and educate the public on, alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles.
Since its beginning in 2002, Odyssey has grown in size and impact. In 2014, 107 sites hosted Odyssey events in the United States, France, and Sweden. More than 100,000 attendees took part in activities such as ride-and-drives, educational seminars, and AFV/advanced technology vehicle training workshops, while being provided with numerous networking opportunities. In addition, Odyssey’s message reached more than 200 million individuals through media outlets.
Odyssey is a unique opportunity to reach millions of people through events held across the country, and the world, as well as through media coverage. This event unites individuals as everyone on the same day learns about the importance of AFVs and advanced technology vehicles and the role they play in achieving cleaner air and energy independence!
Events such as Odyssey play a major role in the acceptance of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. Nearly 11 million alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles are on the roads today. The job is not done. We must continue the journey and it will take all of us working together to continue to make a difference.
