Initiative seminar 2018 Electromobility

Initiative seminar on Electromobility

What role do electric vehicles play for how we plan our cities, for our economy, our health and for the environment – today and in the future?

Having been around for more than a century, electric vehicles are now coming into use on a scale that may have major implications on travel and transportation – by air, by water and by land. Areas of Advance Transport and Energy are happy to welcome you to a full day at Chalmers, where we discuss different aspects on electromobility.

WHEN: 13 September 2018
WHERE: Palmstedssalen, Chalmersplatsen 1, Göteborg
The seminar will be in English.
