Alternative Fuel Conference Set
With the increasing threat of global warming, environmentalists have been urging automakers to design eco-friendly vehicles. These vehicles should be designed to run on alternative fuels which will bring lesser toll to the environment. Alternative fuels are also usually renewable sources thus energy dependence can be achieved. Recently, a conference was set concerning the promotion of the use of alternative fuels.
The International Energy Agency is one of the many groups calling for the widespread use of alternative fuels. And the promotion of alternative fuels and vehicles will be given a boost by a conference recently set by the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute (AFVi). The Alternative Fuels & Vehicles National Conference + Expo will be held from the 11th to the 14th of May next year.
The said conference will be an avenue for those who are interested in entering the alternative fuel industry. Since the industry is relatively young and has only been growing significantly recently, newcomers to the industry are expected to need expert pieces of advice.
The conference will be held at the Las Vegas Rio All-Suites Hotel. Attendees of the conference will hear from experts who will be speaking during the event. The convention of the experts and newcomers to the alternative fuel industry is expected to further accelerate the promotion of alternative fuel vehicles. This is a key factor in reducing the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere, thus reducing the threat of global warming.
The huge amount of carbon dioxide produced by vehicle running on petroleum fuel is trapped in the atmosphere and it then radiates heat towards the surface of the planet. Thus if the production of greenhouse gases continue at a very high rate, global warming will become more threatening. This is the reason why automakers and environmentalists are looking for a solution to the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by vehicles.
It is expected that about 2,000 individuals will be attending the conference. Aside from experts and newcomers to the industry, representatives of automakers are also expected to attend the event. Even Japanese automakers like Subaru, which makes Subaru performance parts, are expected to be present at the event. Automakers who have developed and who are currently developing alternative fuel vehicles can provide expert opinions to producers of alternative fuels.
Aside from automakers, the conference will also be attended by technology developers like companies developing lithium-ion batteries for hybrid vehicles. Bus and heavy truck manufacturers are also expected to join the conference. Even makers of automotive engines will also be attending the conference.
The event will feature a wide array of alternative fuel vehicles available today. Showcasing these vehicles would give attendees of the conference the impression that huge leaps in the industry have already been taken but there is yet more to be done. The vehicles that will be shown during the conference will be composed of light, medium, and heavy duty vehicles.
The last day of the conference will be Public Day. As the name suggests, the last day will be for ordinary folks.
