A clean transportation analyst is kicking off the New West Greens inaugural Speakers Series.
The New West Greens provincial riding association is hosting its first Speakers’ Series featuring guest speaker Pete Poovanna on Monday, April 15 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity Cathedral Church, 514 Carnarvon St. Poovanna, a Canadian Queen Elizabeth Scholar recognized by the 28th Governor General, is a clean transportation analyst who administers the B.C. Fleet Electrification program and has appeared in several scientific publications related to clean technology.
Lesley Malcolm, present of the New West Greens riding association, said the group is pleased to have Poovanna as its first speaker, noting he’s a popular speaker on vehicles electrification and clean technology.
“Our goal is to host local events to find common ground and ways to make a positive difference for our community,” Malcolm said.
Poovanna will speak on the topic of putting waste-heat to work – the future of air conditioning in zero emission vehicles, and electric vehicles as part of B.C.’s climate change solution.
“Increasing the number of electric vehicles is one of many strategies that will help us reduce carbon emissions and meet our climate targets,” BC Greens deputy leader Jonina Campbell said in a press release.
