Please don’t buy an electric car

30 August 2017 18:30-19:30, Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Everyone seems to think that electric cars are an excellent way to reduce pollution and our reliance on fossil fuels. But it's not that simple. Professor Averil Macdonald will explain the serious difficulties and threats that electric cars could bring, and consider the choices and life style changes that we will all have to adopt to move to a totally green electric world. She will then will describe the huge technological and materials challenges in generating and transmitting the electricity we will demand and the current research being undertaken to achieve this.

Join us for refreshments from 17.30. There will also be wine and networking opportunites afterwards.
