ZEST Night May 8: Status of Electric Vehicles and Autonomous Vehicles
May 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Zero-emission vehicles, electrified or powered by carbon-neutral fuels, are becoming more affordable, popular, and proven. At the current rate of cost reductions, most new vehicles on four wheels are projected to be electric by 2025. At the same time, autonomous vehicles and on demand services like Uber and Lyft are already disrupting the way we imagine transportation. Join us May 8th as we delve into this vehicle revolution, dispelling myths, considering implications, and asking, “How can Hood River be ahead of the curve in a new world of unlimited transportation choice?” Representatives from Drive Oregon (now “Forth”) will join the conversation and point to opportunities already underway.
Presentation with links here. The longer videos are also excellent discussions of other clean energy topics.
ZEST Nights are a new event on first Monday evenings. We know that environmental sustainability, and thus economic and cultural sustainability, face extreme risks. ZEST nights present and debate existing and emerging solutions to environmental justice and related social justice problems. Join us for short presentations and engaging discussions focused on new solutions to climate problems, ranging from political to economic to technological or scientific.
