While we can now easily see in great detail what General Motors thinks
about plug-in hybrids
with range extenders, what do others in the industry think about PHEVs? Anyone who can get online with a fast-enough web connection at 1:30 PM EST on February 26 will be able to find out. That's when the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Institute will present a free online seminar (ok, some use the ugly word "webinar") called "All Charged Up: The Promise of Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles."
According to the AFVI page announcing the event
, the speakers will be
- Mark Alexander, Manager, Vehicle Systems Analysis, Electric Power Research Institute
- Dave Modisette, Executive Director, California Electric Transportation Coalition
- Efrain Ornelas, Environmental Technical Supervisor, Pacific Gas and Electric Company
AFVI promises that "Webinar participants will receive a primer on PHEV technology, the benefits and applications. The environmental benefits and value proposition will be a focal point." Anyone can listen in for free, but you have to register first.
