9th Annual Clean Energy Roadshow Opens in Atlanta

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

The 9th Annual Clean Energy Roadshow will open Aug. 27 at Southface Institute in Atlanta moving the following day to the Georgia Cyber Center at Augusta University.

In 2011, Georgia Public Service Commission Vice Chairman Tim Echols wanted to find a way to highlight trends in alternative-fuel-vehicle technology, transportation, mobility and sustainability. The Clean Energy Roadshow was born. At the Roadshow’s two-hour seminar, experts discuss how rural and urban communities use – or could benefit from the use of – electric, propane and natural gas vehicles in private and commercial transportation. They also discuss how fleets can make informed decisions. Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) President, Larry Williams will also give an update on the state of the industry in Georgia’s technology sector.

The Roadshow allows members of Georgia’s communities up-close access to various low-emission and zero-emission vehicles via a walking tour of alt-fuel cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles.

"I started the Clean Energy Roadshow to help business and local governments learn more about alternative fuels and clean energy" said Commissioner Tim Echols. "This 9th annual event will focus on safety, economy, fleets, fueling infrastructure and clean technology.”
