In early March, the Missouri S&T EcoCAR team exhibited at the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Work Truck Show. The NTEA show is hosted for the work truck industry in a different city each year. This year, the MS&T EcoCAR team attended the show in St Louis, MO.
Missouri S&T EcoCAR was one of approximately 5,000 booths at NTEA, ranging from large companies like General Motors to specialty parts businesses. Energy efficiency was a strong focus at the show, and the MS&T team met with several groups that advocate for renewable energy including, Clean Cities. During the show, attendees stopped by the MS&T booth to learn about EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge. Small hydrogen fuel cell vehicles were displayed at the booth and used to explain how hydrogen will power Missouri S&T’s EcoCAR. As people stopped by the Missouri S&T booth, they were asked to take part in an Alternative Energy Vehicle survey. Click here to see the survey results.
The event was a large success as Missouri S&T was able to spread the word about the EcoCAR program. Many attendees were interested to hear about the EcoCAR’s advanced vehicle technology and how it will benefit society.
