ACT Expo 2013 takes place June 24-27 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and Embassy Suites in Washington D.C. It is organized by GNA – Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.

  • Solar Installation at FedEx Field: Home of the Redskins football team, FedEx Field boasts a state-of-the-art solar panel installation that provides 20% of the stadium’s power on game days and 100% on non-game days. The installation is expected to keep 1,780 metric tons of carbon out of the atmosphere each year – the equivalent of replacing 349 gasoline-powered vehicles with zero emission electric vehicles. In addition, the stadium’s parking lot features ten electric vehicle charging stations.
  • Smithsonian Vehicle Repair and Alternative Fueling Facility: This new 14,000-square-foot repair facility features nine light-duty bays with above-ground lifts, a heavy-duty bay for trucks and buses with a mobile lift, a section for small engine repairs, and a wash bay. The facility also has a fueling island with level 2 electric vehicle charging stations and BRC FuelMaker units for CNG/compressed natural gas fueling.
