On April 28, Rocky Mountain Institute cofounder Amory Lovins stopped by the Energy Institute to visit with faculty and give a talk titled “Astonishing Automotive Futures: Disruptive Designs, Analyses, and Strategies.” If you missed it:
TE3 brings economic scholars together with government and industry practitioners to explore transportation and fuel research for energy and environmental policies that will foster progress toward long-term climate protection and business goals.
The Battery Show Exhibition & Conference is a showcase of advanced battery technology for electric & hybrid vehicles, utility & renewable energy support, portable electronics, medical technology, military and telecommunications.
If EVs are critical to significantly reducing or eliminating carbon dioxide emissions from automobiles over the next three decades – and I believe they are – we need to think about ways to appeal to desires and interests not only of consumers, but of public and private institutions with a stake in our energy and transportation systems. In short, we should extol EVs not for their low-carbon virtue, but as a way to create and to satisfy demand in both the electricity and transportation sectors.
