First, thank you to the NC Clean Energy Technology Center and Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition for organizing and hosting these incredible events held in Concord NC at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and in Garner NC at the Highway Patrol Precision Driving Center. These are both very exciting places for all of the vendors and attendees.
We were excited and had a great two days of Presenting, Displaying and Providing Test Rides on our eBikes to an invite only group of North Carolina Government Representatives in charge of Fleet Purchases. This included City, State and Institutional Managers of Transportation Services currently utilizing mostly Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) based vehicles.
As we all know by now, ICE based Cars, Trucks and Utility Vehicles are one of the Largest Contributors to Greenhouse Gas Emissions, which is a major cause of Environmental Changes.
Intent on making a major impact on this issue within the state of North Carolina, the NC Government and Governor Roy Cooper, there is an Executive Order that has organized Grant Money that is to be used for the replacement of Greenhouse Gas emitting vehicles with Clean Energy Fuels or Zero Emission Technologies and Vehicles.
We were proud to be Presenting, Displaying and Providing Test Rides on three eBikes that are Simple to Operate and targeted at Urban Access and Cargo Carrying. We had a BULLS E 2 Street, Riese & Muller Packster 40 and a TERN GSD S10. We had a lot of great questions to answer and had many Test Rides with lots of interest. We are moving to the Next Steps with several Agency and Department Representatives which generally leads to an Extended Onsite Test Ride at their locations around the state.
We were excited to present eBikes in North Carolina alongside this incredible list of Clean Fuel or Zero Emission Technologies targeting transportation:
- Alternative Fuel Vehicles & Infrastucture
Guardian Fueling Technologies
LKQ LPG Story
- Idle Reduction Technologies:
