Event Highlights: Electrifying Personal Transportation

Renewable Cities moderated a session at the Global Grid Forum 2019: Electrifying Personal Transportation – Insights from Leading Jurisdictions.

Renewable Cities partnered with Edison Electric Institute and the Dutch Consulate to bring some of the world’s most advanced jurisdictions in transportation electrification to the Global Grid Forum 2019 in Vancouver, BC. Presenters included: Baerte de Brey (ElaadNL, the Dutch e-mobility knowledge and innovation centre), Niu Jincang (China State Grid EV Service) and Paul Grigaux (Southern California Edison). 

Alex Boston, Executive Director of Renewable Cities, moderated a series of events with this international gathering of utilities, as well as key decision makers across the public and private sector. BC has joined a small cadre of jurisdictions with bold transportation electrification commitments, earnest initial steps down this path and a genuine interest in learning from the trailblazers.
