The October 16 event offered an in-depth and engaging discussion on electric vehicles. From an overview of the benefits of driving electric cars, to research findings on their energy efficiency, to how electric vehicles impact the grid, panelists shared their insights into this clean technology and the economic and health benefits it offers.
