GREEN’S GRANT – As all-electric cars become increasingly common, their popularity can be credited in part to events such as the Alt Energy Summit, which next month is hoping to bring the largest field of alternative-energy based vehicles in North America to the Mount Washington Auto Road, according to its organizers.
Founded in 1975, the Alt Energy Summit went dormant in recent years but was “rebooted” in 2013 and returns again this year on Sept 13 and 14 under the direction of Ted Dillard, a Boston-area writer, photographer and businessman who expects as many as 100 alternative-energy vehicles to be on hand.To be held rain or shine, the free event will feature a parade up the Auto Road as well as workshops for inventors and the public to educate both groups about the variety of alternate-fueled vehicles already out there and to inspire them to build – or buy – one.
This year’s summit, said Dillard from his Dedham, Mass., home, will serve to kick off the New England celebrations of National Drive Electric Week. The New Hampshire Electric Cooperative is the presenting sponsor of the summit, which boasts major manufacturers, electric vehicle associations, industry suppliers and individual “makers.”
