Join us for a special free Vancouver public lecture on electric vehicles, their public acceptance and policy challenges by Dr. Jonn Axsen. For decades, the promise of electric-powered vehicles has inspired hope for a clean, low-carbon, petroleum-free transportation system. So where are these electric vehicles? Dr. Jonn Axsen draws from in-depth market and technical research to explore society’s readiness for such a transition–and outline the policies required to get there.
