Event Details

The Evolution of Vehicles - Electric Vehicles and Houston
 
The Clean Economy Network Houston Chapter is organizing an event that will showcase electric vehicles on Tuesday, May 24. The latest EVs on the market will be on display and attendees will be able to experience them up close and learn from a panel of experts about their effect on the local economy.
 
As you may know, Houston has made strides to be a leader in the EV arena with several big successes: first Nissan roll-out in Texas, several GM Volt events, EV Readiness city, and several state and Federal funding successes. The city has already had a fleet of several hundred of hybrids, which demonstrates its early leadership in clean/efficient vehicle technologies.
 
Because of the popularity of the topic and the focus on making business connections, we expect this event to draw a significant amount of attention and interest in Houston. We would like to invite you to join us.
