CERES Electric Vehicle Conference 2010
Posted in Events by ceres on July 29th, 2010
Since 2007 CERES – Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies – has been involved in retrofitting petrol cars to electric drive to demonstrate how Australia’s existing car stock can be used to build an Electric Vehicle (EV) fleet, minus the carbon emissions that result from the manufacture of new cars. CERES’ latest project aims to provide small business, local councils and rural delivery services with a non-polluting transport option by pioneering the conversion of one of Australia’s most popular delivery vans, the Mercedes Sprinter.
As part of this project, CERES Green Technology is holding an Electric Vehicle Conference to provide interested individuals, auto mechanics, small business, local councils, researchers and educators with practical information about undertaking roadworthy EV conversions, and driving EVs. Spend a day with Australia’s top EV experts to learn about the practical side of converting cars to electric drive.
