Production of electric vehicles is expanding rapidly by major auto companies. Many governments are supportive. France and the United Kingdom have announced a phase-out of conventionally fueled cars by 2040. China has surpassed the US in the size of its electric car market. EV costs are declining. EVs produce zero tailpipe emissions and require less maintenance than conventional vehicles.
But what about the environmental impacts of increased electricity demand? Is battery technology improving sufficiently to increase driving range? Will recharging infrastructure be expanded adequately to service more vehicles? These and other questions will be discussed by our speakers.
Event is open to the public.
