September 13th & 14th 2014
Check here later this fall for updates to the 2014 edition!
Continuing its historic role as a proving and playground for new and evolving technologies, the Mt. Washington Auto Road will be hosting a new “Alt Energy Summit” weekend event on September 13-14, 2014. Given the proliferation of vehicles on the road fueled by alternative sources, this event will bring together examples of what technologies are currently available on the open market, including electric, propane, bio-diesel, compressed natural gas, hybrid electric, as well as inviting entrepreneurs who are developing their own versions of alternative power.
ALT Energy Vehicles:
· Trucks, cars, vans, PEVs using alternative fuels and energy, including hybrid technology.
· Bicycles, motorcycles and scooters using all-electric, hybrid, or emerging technology fuel sources.
· Other vehicles – skateboards, robotics, even low-altitude flight – if it’s a creative solution to fossil-fuel based transportation.
ALT Energy Products and Services:
· Renewable Energy emerging technology – whether theoretical, in development, in prototype, or readily available to show, discuss, test and demonstrate either at our “Summit”, in roundtable discussions, or in our “Drive to the Summit”.
“The Mt. Washington Auto Road has seen the evolution of transportation play out on its eight mile path to the summit. Considering that the first motor vehicle to ever go up was a steam powered Stanley Locomobile in 1899, it seems very appropriate that we showcase how alternative energy technologies have evolved since then,” said Howie Wemyss, General Manager of the Mt. Washington Auto Road and Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center. Special thanks go to our presenting sponsor, the New Hampshire Electric Co-op.

We now have an electric charging station on property! It’s a Clipper Creek CS-90 that all electric cars can use and it is located on the lodge side of Rt 16 (opposite to the entrance where you drive yourself). It’s on the left side of the Red Barn Museum behind the lodge. Currently there is no cost but we do appreciate donations which can be made at the station. Read the press release here.
