What's Ahead for Electric Vehicles

In the last decade, there have been substantial gains in electric vehicle (EV) technology affecting a broad spectrum of individual, transportation, and commercial vehicles.  Please join us for our February forum where we’ll hear from Amy Hillman on the biggest news in EVs over the last year, and from Ingrid Fish, who will provide a local perspective on EVs and how they are an important part of the City of Portland’s strategy for carbon reduction.

She participates in team efforts to apply an equity lens to the City’s climate action and climate preparation plans to ensure actions support equitable community outcomes.
