First Electric Vehicle conference: The road toward mainstream adoption

The HEC MBA Energy Club organizes the first Electric Vehicle conference on the theme: The road toward mainstream adoption.

The use of vehicles powered by electricity is undoubtedly one of the best solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight against global warming even in case the coal-based or oil-based electric power generation. Despite their benefits, however, the pervasive use of electric cars faces some hurdles such as high price, driving-range insufficiency, and limited recharging infrastructure.

Our best speakers from Nissan, Renault, AutoLib', Schneider Electric, ABB, EDF, Municipality of Paris and Accenture will discuss the main solutions to these challenges and the ways to bring EVs to the mass market in the few coming years.
