Stavanger hosts “Towards Zero Emission” seminar

Last updated: 08.06.2009 // Stavanger is hosting the 24th International Electric Vehicle Symposium this week from May 13-16, with the theme “Towards Zero Emission”. It will be attended by HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Vice-President of the European Commission, Margot Wallström, HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and the President of Iceland Ólaufur Ragnar Grímsson.

The International Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exposition (EVS) series, organized by the World Electric Vehicle Association (WEVA), is recognized as the premier event for academic, government and industry professionals involved in electric drive technologies. This years event has the theme “Towards Zero Emission”.

The World Electric Vehicle Association unites the European Association for Battery, Hybrid and Fuelcell Electric Vehicles (AVERE), the Electric Drive Transportation Association (EDTA) and the Electric Vehicle Association of Asia Pacific (EVAAP).

The EVS series began in 1969 as an academic forum for global networking and the exchange of technical information. As electric drive technologies progressed from the classrooms and laboratories into the marketplace, EVS blossomed into an event both academic and business oriented.

Today, the EVS series is recognized as the global electric transportation industry’s premier and largest forum, showcasing all forms of technologies in the market place and on the drawing boards–from low speed battery electric vehicles to fuel cell electric buses. The event attracts academic, government and industry leaders from around the world who are interested in exploring and understanding the technical, policy and market challenges to a paradigm shift toward use of electric transportation technologies.
