The Emperor's New Hydrogen Economy

A book by Darryl McMahon

Last updated 2008.06.01

The Electric Vehicle Council of Ottawa (EVCO) EV Expo 2008

(held Saturday, May 31 2008 at the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology)

Despite heavy rains in the morning while we were setting up, we were pleased to participate in the annual show put on by EVCO. We brought the Green14 (1973 Porsche 914 converted to electric drive), the 1975 Auranthetic electric motorcycle, some Soneil battery chargers, PakTrakrs, Water Savers and of course, copies of The Emperor's New Hydrogen Economy. We snapped a few pictures and some of them are shown below.

There was a great array of electric vehicles and other related displays, including an electric pickup truck, several electric cars, an electric motorcycle, electric bicycles, electric tractors, a diesel motorcycle, human powered vehicles, and more.

Setting up in the rain (Green14 in background) – you have to be committed
to be a bicycle-only family in these weather conditions.
