NREL to Showcase Renewable Electricity Generation Systems and Advanced Vehicles at Denver Earth Day Fair 

The U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will showcase two mobile renewable electricity generation systems and three advanced vehicles—a Toyota Highlander fuel cell electric vehicle, a plug-in Toyota Prius hybrid electric vehicle, and a Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric vehicle—at the Denver Earth Day Fair on April 22.

The larger of NREL’s two renewable electricity generation systems features a 12 kilowatt biodiesel-powered back-up generator as well as a 1.8 kilowatt photovoltaic array that taps into energy from the sun to produce renewable electricity, which will power the fair. The smaller system includes a 384 watt photovoltaic array.

Representatives from NREL will be on hand to answer questions about the technologies on display—including a table-top fuel cell system—and provide information and educational literature about renewable energy, alternative fuels, and advanced vehicles.

The fair, which is hosted by the City and County of Denver, is free and open to the public.

NREL is the U.S. Department of Energy's primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development. NREL is operated for DOE by The Alliance for Sustainable Energy, LLC.
