Stanford will host an Electric and Fuel Cell Vehicle Showcase on April 7, 2010, at Stanford University in conjunction with the Stanford Energy Seminar and a course offered this spring on Sustainable
Mobility: Improving Energy Efficiency and Reducing CO2 Emissions from Transport (Special Class Session). Included in the showcase are light duty vehicles running on batteries, and hydrogen fuel cells, as well as plug-in hybrid vehicles that both charge batteries from the grid and carry a fuel tank to run an engine when batteries run down.
Sustainable Mobility: Improving Energy Efficiency and Reducing CO2 Emissions from Transport (MS2 296)
|12:15 – 1:05||Class|
|1:10 – 1:35||How Consumers Choose Cars, Robert Bienenfeld, Honda of North America|
|1:35 – 2:00||Surprise – The Remarkable rise in Electric Bikes and What it Means, Jonathan Weinert, Chevron Research|

|Clark Auditorium, Bio-X
The event begins at 12:15 with the regular session of Lee Schipper’s class MS2 296, “Sustainable Mobility”, which will be held this day only in Clark Auditorium. From 1:10 – 3:20 a mini-workshop will feature speakers discussing issues related to electric drive, with emphasis on non-technical issues such as policies, consumer choices, and consumer behavior with e-drive. Dr. Schipper works for the Precourt Energy Efficiency Center at Stanford.
Energy Seminar: Electric and Fuel Cell Vehicle Showcase
4:15 – 5:45, Reception to follow
Parking Structure 2, Lower Level, Across from Y2E2
The vehicle display is part of the regular Energy Seminar, and begins at 4.15. The vehicle display will include a half dozen pre-commercial vehicles (Daimler, Honda, Tesla, Toyota,Volkswagen, AC Propulsion eBox from PG&E’s Fleet). Groups will rotate through stations and representatives will describe the vehicle attributes.
