It’s widely recognised that with New Zealand’s high level of renewable electricity generation and substantial renewable energy resources we are better placed than most countries to benefit from emissions reduction potential of a shift to electric vehicles.  This year Elizabeth Yeaman EECA’s Transport Development Manager will speak on the future of electric vehicles including their impact on electricity demand and the consumer benefits of having the battery storage of EV’s available to households. NZWEA Chair and CE will also provide a brief update on NZWEA strategy and activities.

Voting papers, if required, will be sent out on Friday 27 October.

We hope members will be able to join us at this year’s meeting.
