What is Odyssey Day? It's actually a national, biennial event coordinated by the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium that promotes awareness of alternative-fueled vehicles in order to demonstrate that they are an integral part of the solution to America's environmental and energy needs. The consortium's goals include:
- The encouragement of investment in a nationwide alternative fuel infrastructure
- Lobbying for alternative fuel vehicle tax rebates and incentives
- Alternative fuel and AFV education
The event in Iowa is being co-sponsored by the American Lung Association and the Des Moines Area Community College and will include a tradeshow featuring alternative-fueled vehicles.
