Meeting Date: July 21, 2021
California will phase out gasoline-powered cars by 2035 joining 15 countries that have built a roadmap to boost technical innovation toward a zero-emission transportation and develop regulations to accelerate the transition from fossil fuel vehicles to electrical vehicles. From a sustainable engineering perspective, an electrical vehicle will emit less greenhouse gas at the car/truck level but the benefit on climate change involves a large array of additional factors. Momin Quddus, speaker, will present an overview of the EV technology and its place in achieving sustainable future for humanity. He will discuss the future of EVs and their implication in slowing down global warming and climate change. In addition, he will touch on interest on EV in the financial markets.
