North Island Events

Electric vehicles (EVs) aren’t the stuff of science fiction, they are very real and they are here to stay! 

If you haven’t seen an electric vehicle for yourself, come along to a Leading The Charge event.  At these events, you will be able to talk to some of the owners or read information about the current EV situation in New Zealand and what steps are being taken to increase uptake.

    THURSDAY 19 October, 6PM - 7PM

     

    Listen to Professor Robert McLachlan from Massey University as he talks about "Climate Change & The Electric Revolution". 

    The impacts of climate change are hitting home all around the world and at last if feels like the world is beginning to take notice. In New Zealand, our government has agreed to reduce net emissions to zero soon after 2050: together, we have to work out how we are going to achieve that. Every journey begins with a single step, and the first step here is to stop buying things that burn fossil fuels — cars especially — and electrify everything
