Taking The Greener Road with Electric Vehicles
Wednesday, June 5, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
Our June event will feature a presentation by Max Baumhefner, Sustainable Energy Fellow at the Natural Resources Defense Council. Mr. Baumhefner will dive into the most recent data on the environmental impact of electric vehicles and examine the unique opportunities to integrate more renewable energy into the electrical grid made possible by electric vehicles. He will also discuss a recently published Electricity Journal article he co-authored that examines the relationship between consumer interest, electric vehicles, and clean energy.
