Attend, Watch - Tue Oct 6th: Insights into the Future of Clean Transportation

Electric cars, natural gas trucks, plug-in hybrids, fuel cell vehicles... As the global auto industry retools and re-emerges following the financial crisis, new technologies, players and business models are promising to reinvent not only how we drive but one of the key engines of global growth. Clean vehicles have the potential to provide energy security, help solve climate change and create new jobs and wealth. But just how the industry re-emerges, where it thrives and what technologies and companies will come out on top remain vital questions, the answers to which will impact not only America’s future but the world’s.

To understand the future of clean transportation, NDN will convene a panel of experts for discussion on clean vehicles and the future of the auto industry. Joining us will be Dave McCurdy, former Congressman and President and CEO of the Auto Alliance, Kim Hill of the Center for Automotive Research, who has recently completed a study on jobs and environmental benefits resulting from fleet conversion, using AT&T as a case study and Mike Granoff, Head of Oil Independence Policies for Better Place, the transformative, Palo Alto-based electric car infrastructure company. Moderating the forum will be NDN Green Project Director, Michael Moynihan.
