Electric Horizon: Alfred Deakin Eco-Innovation Lectures
Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on July 16th, 2009
Shai Agassi, founder of Better Place, shares his inspired vision of freeing cars from oil, reducing harmful exhaust, and ushering in a new era of sustainable transportation. He will discuss the economic factors, industry dynamics, geopolitical pressures, and mounting environmental concerns that are combining to drive this profound change, as well as the challenges we face in realising this vision.
Agassi sees consumers subscribing to transportation as they do with mobile phones; he wants car companies to make electric cars that plug-in to Better Place’s distributed recharge network and he wants energy companies to provide power through renewable energy projects.
