The Solar Energy Society of Alberta and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology are teaming up to offer a day-long symposium on alternative transportation options including electric, hybrid, biodiesel, human-powered, hydrogen and solar technologies.

The event will include a dozen informational workshops, music, solar baked cookies and a solar technologies demonstration trailer. The workshops will cover such topics as: how to convert a gas vehicle to electric, cold-weather battery performance and a carbon footprint analysis of various alternative technologies.

A car show will display 40 alternative vehicles from electric bicycles and cars on up to NAIT’s new high efficiency CAT-660 Vocational Truck and a sporty Tesla Roadster. The car show will feature alternative technology vehicles from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, the University of Alberta and many of Edmonton’s auto dealerships. Test rides in an all-electric car will be available.
