For the new breed of R-EV heads: the Revolution of Electric Vehicles!
Webinar #1 of 8: THE EV REVOLUTION
6 – 7pm 11 August 2020
On Tuesday, 11 August, Zero Emissions Byron (ZEB), will kick start a series of eight Zoom webinars, entirely focused on the Electric Vehicle Revolution.Replacing our original plan to hold a combined “live” EV Expo and Forum, ZEB will be staging monthly, hour-long, facilitated online discussions, delving into every nook and cranny of EV life.
The R-EV 8-webinar series will give you the opportunity to listen to, and ask questions of, knowledgeable industry leaders on the topic of EVs. From conversions to charging options, from batteries to the grid, from range anxiety to the secondhand market – we’ll explore them all. From the privacy of your own space, tune in to Australia’s leading EV industry experts to learn how EVs are changing our lives. Find out how you can cut back your use of fossil fuels and reduce your carbon emissions with electric vehicles.
In R-EV#1, CEO of the Electric Vehicle Council, Behyad Jafari and NSW Net Zero expert, Dr Stephen Bygrave will present short slideshows on the challenges and benefits of transitioning to electric vehicles, and what NSW is doing to assist the path to zero emissions transport. Facilitated by Mick O’Regan, there will be an opportunity for listeners to ask curated questions via the Zoom chat window afterwards.
