The COP 15 Copenhagen United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009 kicks off this today in Copenhagen, and all of those delegates and personnel need to get around somehow. Auto companies from around the world are providing vehicles for the event, including 15 Think City EVs, 60 Citroen C1 ev'ie electric cars, a Mercedes Benz E-Class sedan running on pure biodiesel provided by Solazyme, a fleet of Honda Insights and at least on Honda FCX Clarity. There's also the city's public transportation system available, but we imagine with the masses of extra people – there are representatives from 192 countries – those buses might be a bit crowded. The Think City electric cars will also be a part of the Copenhagen Hopenhagen Live Parade this coming Sunday. The parade is being billed as "a cavalcade of alternative fuels vehicles through the centre of the city to mark the close of the 2009 climate change conference."

UPDATE: There was also a parade of hydrogen cars in Copenhagen last week for the conference.
