Odyssey Week 2010: South Carolina Alternative Fuels Seminar
October 12, 2010
Events to demonstrate the business case for using alternative fuels
South Carolinians will have the opportunity to learn how alternative fuel vehicles can make good business sense at three events scheduled around the Palmetto State this month.
Sponsored by the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) and West Virginia University, Odyssey Week will culminate on National Odyssey Day October 15 at Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
Odyssey Week aims to educate South Carolinians about alternative fuel vehicles (AFV) and infrastructure. This year, the Palmetto State Clean Fuels Coalition is taking it one step further by outlining the potential return on investment for using alternative fuel vehicles. The sessions are designed for fleet managers, business community members, municipal officials and other organizations and will feature presentations by financial experts.
Sessions will be held at these locations:
- On Wednesday, October 13 Odyssey Week travels to Rock Hill, SC for a meeting at York Technical College, South Carolina’s only NAFTC training center.
- Thursday, October 14, Palmetto Gas in Sumter.
- Friday, October 15 Greenville – National Odyssey Week Finale at the Carroll Campbell Engineering Center. Special Guest, Sen. Thomas Alexander and a special announcement from Freightliner Customer Chassis.
