Event Details

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. 

This month's Drive Oregon event is held in conjunction with World Environment Day.  As an annual event organized by the United Nations Environmental Programme, World Environment Day celebrates positive action around climate, energy, and environmental issues.  For 2013, Portland has been named North American host city of this international event.  Visit the City of Portland's website to learn about other activities happening on the day and how you can get involved.
