Event Report

People had a lot of fun and from the feedback, the event seemed to have given people a well rounded introduction to all things EV.
We had an Energy lab which created excitement among kids and adults alike.
We had EVs at many price points and varying forms (Student made, go karts, trikes, etc)
Our technical talks covered topics from San Antonio's energy portfolio,present and future EV infrastructure, benefits of EVs in a smarter grid and Lithium technology advancements and challenges
We had a few home built EVs and they still catch peoples' attention with Teslas beside them.
We arranged tours to see the on-site 150kW PV installation

The speakers included a senior scientist (Dr. Mike Miller) from Southwest Research Institute, Strategic Research & Innovation Manager(Dr Eddie Kirby) at CPS(utility) & Dr. Les Shepard a professor and local policy maker.

Overall it was a great event-enjoyed by all. Many thanks to the NDEW community!
