The next seminar in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series, “Electric Cars in 2050: Are We Ready?” presented by Malini Ghosal, Power Systems Research Engineer at PNNL, will take place on Tuesday, February 11, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., at the Mid-Columbia Library (1620 S. Union St., Kennewick).
It is projected that by 2050, up to 75 percent of new car sales will be electric cars. But, is the nation’s electric grid ready to cope with the additional demands? Is the existing infrastructure prepared to support this future? This talk will cover what the major challenges of electrification of transportation are and how PNNL researchers are working together to solve those problems.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series was launched to help the general public better understand and explore how science transforms our world.
