To EV or not to EV, that is the question. When and why might it make sense to buy an electric car? by Lindsay Wood

September 3 @ 2:00 pm


The Nelson Institute presents a talk by Lindsay Wood: To EV or not to EV, that is the question. When and why might it make sense to buy an electric car? 

With advances in the range of electric vehicles, a snowballing range of available models, and progressive improvements in the charging infrastructure, people are increasingly asking when is the right time to switch to an EV. This talk will background the quest to electrify our vehicle fleet, explore some of the upsides and downsides, and compare choices for buying and running EVs and fossil fuel cars. Expect some surprises!

Lindsay Wood is director of climate strategy company Resilienz, and its sister company Clearcut Calculators. He “specialises in being a generalist”, in interpreting the science and technology of climate for the general public, and in seeking “multiplier effects” in the quest to make our society more climate responsible. He writes and broadcasts regularly, including Climate Matters (a “free, fortnightly and always just one page” newsletter that goes out to some 5000 readers), and has developed software tools that make it easy to compare EVs.
