"Vehicle Electrification: Maintenance, Jobs, Building Energy, Self-Driving Cars."
Dr. Quarto' Key Speaker presentation will continue the electric vehicle focus of the past six months of Energy Lunch programming that addresses a new energy pathway from local renewable solar energy to electric transportation systems that use no imported fossil fuels. This new energy pathway is seen as easily sustainable without subsidy, appears to strengthen the finances of the Jefferson County public power utility, and meets all of the local energy planning objectives that have emerged from Energy Lunch activities: local prosperity, de-carbonization, and energy resilience.
Those who plan to attend are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch. Good sandwiches and other brown bag food items are available nearby at either Pho Thao or El Guadalajara on Washington Street, at the Port Townsend Food Coop on Kearney Street, and at other locations on the Port Townsend Waterfront or in the Boat Haven.
The Jefferson County Energy Lunch Program is an activity of the Jefferson County Energy LLC (ELLC) that is currently in the process of being formed.
