Solar-powered electric cars?

How can solar power and electric vehicles work together to support a cleaner, more efficient electrical grid? What needs to be done to safely and affordably integrate these technologies into our neighborhoods and cities? Get some answers from Cameron Coleman, principal of InSpec Energy Solutions consulting firm, which has worked on the design and integration of solar photo-voltaic (PV) systems, solar electric vehicle charging stations, solar thermal projects, small hydro power generation, and energy storage systems. Cam's most recent project was the design and integration of a solar PV system at Safeco field for the Seattle Mariners.

Cosponsoring this OMSI Science Pub are Oregon's Citizens Utility Board and Solar Oregon, a non-profit that provides outreach and education on solar technology and energy efficiency. OMSI requests a $5 cover charge.

    Awful speaker; very condescending. Spent WAY TOO MUCH TIME, on early electric history - and not enough on current developments of solar power and its application to the automotive connections.

    Good grid understanding, though.
