Feature Workshop: Electrify Your Fleet
October 27, 2014
Is your fleet ready for electric vehicles? Last fall, the Government of British Columbia committed to take action towards having zero-emission vehicles make up 10% of all public and private fleet vehicle sales by 2016. This commitment, also signed by California, Washington and Oregon, could mean an additional 3,000 zero-emission vehicle sales in BC by 2016.
Join us at this workshop on Monday, October 27 to learn more about opportunities for incorporating electric vehicles (EVs) into a fleet, examples of fleets who have successfully integrated EVs, and what the future holds for EVs from a fleet perspective. Connect with panels of experts, and bring your questions!
The registration fee is $60, lunch included. Learn more and register.
This workshop is being held in partnership by Fraser Basin Council, Clean Energy Canada and Electric Mobility Canada, with additional support from the Automotive Recyclers of Canada.
