National Drive Electric Week
Sep 14, 2016
|Day:||Wednesday, September 14, 2016 NOTE: this event has already happened, find current-year events on the Attend page.|
We had a smaller event that we did our best to put together with limited time to prepare and promote. Tesla Model S & X, Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt were displayed in the parking lot from 5-6 pm. Then we went inside Bertucci's for two presentations.
Michael Craner, owner of a Tesla Roadster, Model S & Model X, discussed the technical and ethical challenges of developing the software for autonomous vehicles.
Tony Cotton, founder of Energy Conscious LLC and the owner of a Nissan Leaf, discussed the need to consider the holistic nature of clean energy systems and how to connect the dots between solar PV, EVs, and smart homes. Key points were:
• EVs are a key component of a clean energy future and are fun, clean and affordable
• Solar PV is also important and can power your EV with sunlight
• Market Penetration Caps are cleared with repurposed EV packs and Smart Power electronics
• Using DC directly leverages synergies of multiple technologies and most cost effective energy reductions
