Dr Phil Coker from the University of Reading will discuss the challenges and benefits of electrifying transport. Hosted by Reading Friends of the Earth.

This event will take place on Friday 24 September 2021 at 18:30.

Dr. Phil Coker is an unashamed enthusiast for electric driving. However, there may be a bumpy road ahead both in ensuring the grid evolves as quickly as our cars and in allowing everyone to benefit from this revolution. Phil will outline the latest energy system research and industry activity that is preparing the way for electrification and will deal with some of the common misconceptions. We will then move on to a discussion of the benefits and challenges to help think through how we can all change our transport habits for the better.
