Hello Green Drinkers!
So much is happening here in Richmond this month–we hope you have time to join us on Thursday, September 17 for our monthly get together. It’s National Drive Electric Week and Drive Electric RVA and Old Dominion Innovations will be Sponsoring this month’s event. Electric vehicles will be at the curb so you can check them out. Plus our Sponsors will discuss how you can combine your electric car and solar power for emissions-free driving! You don’t want to miss this.
The mission of Drive Electric RVA is to promote electric vehicles (EVs) as a fun, practical transportation alternative that reduces energy consumption and air pollution. We provide opportunities in the metro Richmond region for EV owners to learn from each other and for the general public to learn about EV technology. Additionally we advocate for increasing the use of renewable energy to generate electricity and for reducing the environmental impact of EVs over their entire life cycle. On September 17, find out how electric vehicle and solar power technology can be combined to offer zero emission transportation for Richmonders. Charles Gerena, lead organizer of Drive Electric RVA, and Mark Nedervelt of Old Dominion Innovations will lead the discussion.
And in case you missed last month’s Green Drinks, a special thank you to Cary Jamieson, Director of the Bryan Innovation Lab at the Steward School. We had a fantastic evening at the Lab surrounded by delicious student-grown vegetables and modern sustainable design. Check out this photo from coverage in the Henrico Citizen. Also stay tuned for future events at the Bryan Innovation Lab including their ongoing Visiting Innovators Program.
