Expert industry panel to discuss green vehicles and related issues at MIT

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the New England Motor Press plan to convene a green-vehicle panel of experts. Why not be a part of it?

As the U.S. heads towards some significant corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) milestones and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles are about to make their push, the green-car market finds itself at a crossroads. Are sales of EVs and related green cars growing at an acceptable pace? Will hydrogen fail due to a lack of infrastructure? Will range extended and plug-in vehicles continue to vie for the top sales spot with battery electric vehicles? Why does CARB offer twice the financial support to fuel cell vehicles compared to battery electrics? These issues and more will be discussed at MIT by a panel of experts and you can be a part of the event.

May 21st at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge Mass., NEMPA and MIT will host an event that will bring together the automotive press, automotive manufacturers, industry experts on green-vehicle infrastructure, elected officials, and other parties involved in the green-vehicle movement.

This is the fifth in a series of leading-edge automotive issues to be explored by the MIT/NEMPA alliance. Last year’s event featured a presentation and discussion by Pete Reyes, Chief Engineer of the new, aluminum-intensive Ford F-150. His insights and candid replies to attendee questions were just part of the exciting event.

Where else will you be able to meet and discuss green vehicle technology with the very people shaping the future? Tickets are still available for the event.

Here's possibly an incomprehensible proposal: let the free market (those purchasing the vehicles) decide what will succeed or fail – not the amount of subsidies, rebates, bailouts, or inputs from non-producers.
I second the motion!
