Zero Emission Vehicles: Where are They Going?
Friday, September 7 | 10:00 to 11:00 am | Reading Room 123
The Baker Cafe Series is a set of informal discussions on pressing policy challenges. Guests are encouraged to pose questions and gain insight from leading experts. We even provide refreshments!
For this Baker Cafe, Dr. David Greene, a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and a Senior Fellow of the Howard Baker Center, will review the recent progress of zero emission vehicles (ZEV).
The discussion will include the charging/refueling infrastructure required, the cost and performance of the vehicles, the status of sales in the U.S. and worldwide, and consider future projections of battery costs and market success. The impacts of US policies affecting ZEV sales, especially California’s Zero Emission Vehicle standards, fuel economy and greenhouse gas standards will also be part of the conversation.
This event is free and open to the public. Guests may park in the Vol Hall Garage on White Avenue at no charge by requesting a parking voucher from Baker Center staff at the event.
