Making Electric Vehicles Practical: Overcoming Adoption Fears
Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (PDT)
Daly City, CA
The benefits that cars have brought over the last century can’t be overstated. At the same time, though, related oil use has created profound economic, health and environmental problems, which will get much worse as hundreds of millions in the developing world enter the middle class. Better Place’s goal is to break the monopoly oil has on transportation, by accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles. At our May Green Project Management seminar, Pete Cooper of Better Place will describe the company’s innovative model, which makes driving electric vehicles more practical.
Better Place (www.betterplace.com) is the leading global provider of electric car networks that enable the mass-market adoption of electric cars through an innovative battery-switch model that makes driving electric cars more affordable, convenient, and sustainable than today’s gasoline-powered cars. Better Place owns and operates a network of battery-switch stations and public/personal Charge Spots, along with the supply of batteries that power the cars, to provide drivers with instant range extension and the convenience to drive, switch, and go across an entire region. Where possible, Better Place uses renewable sources of energy to deliver fully zero-emissions driving. The World Economic Forum has named Better Place a “Global Growth Company Industry Shaper” for its innovative approach in advancing the global switch to electric cars.
Refreshments: Coffee, juice and water
Access: A couple blocks from Daly City BART Station, easy access from 280 with free parking available next door
