Electric Transportation: An Industry Overview and What’s Happening in San Antonio
Featuring Julia Jones, Research Manager-Technology Transfer for CPS Energy
Electric transportation is evolving at an unimaginable rate. Almost every major auto manufacturer will have a plug-in vehicle on the market within the next few years. Each one will offer a slightly different electric drive and there will be body styles to suit just about every driver. This transportation revolution will be the greatest since the mass production of the Model T and will have far-reaching impacts on utilities, the economy, and the environment. The presentation is designed to provide a “crash course” overview of the issues along with resources for further investigation.
