At the begining of Year Two of the EcoCAR competition, the Roanoke Civic Center hosted a Green Living and Energy Exposition that showcased clean energy and sustainable products. Companies were on hand to display sustainable building materials and vehicles. The event was open to the public and the Virginia Tech Hybrid Electric Vehicle Team (HEVT) attended to promote EcoCAR and advanced technology vehicles. Attendees ranged from children on school trips to adults interested in helping the environment.
At the event, HEVT discussed what they’re doing to make their EcoCAR vehicle better for the environment. They also expressed their opinion of other green technologies and visited exhibitor booths to learn more about energy efficiency and sustainable living.
