Powering Up Cities for Plug-In Hybrids

Wednesday, Jan 21, 2009

An enormous investment is underway to develop and produce plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) to help shift on-road transportation away from petroleum. In most of the country PHEV's won't require a new infrastructure, unlike other alternative-fuel vehicles. But in cities like New York, many car owners do not park in personal garages so there is no easy place to recharge a PHEV. How can New York City smooth the transition to PHEVs? Where is governmental action required? What elements in the transition depend on initiatives which must come from utilities, vehicle manufacturers, parking facilities, and vehicle fleet operators?

Sponsor: New York Academy of Sciences Green Sciences and Environmental Systems
Co-Sponsor: New York University Wagner Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management

Date: Wednesday, January 21, 6-8 pm

Location: New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich Street, 40th Floor

Speakers:
Mark Duvall-Electric Power Research Institute will present the technological and economic issues that must be addressed to make plug-in hybrid vehicles commercially viable.
Arthur Kressner-Director of research and development for Power Supply, Con Edison, will discuss what changes are needed in the electrical supply system in order for it to successfully accommodate PHEVs, such as developing Smart Grid capability.
Richard Drake-Program manager at NYSERDA for alternative-fuel vehicle technology. He'll focus on the results of the first phase of NYSERDA's PHEV Initiative Program, which is working towards large scale deployment of PHEVs in New York State's own fleet.

Closer Look: Demolition
6 Jun
A demolition permit has been filed for the Union Carbide Building, in a city that generates roughly seven million tons of construction + demolition debris a year. NYC is also home to 23 (soon to be 24) of the world’s tallest intentionally demolished buildings. Take a closer look at demolition impacts as well as alternative pathways for preservation + sustainability
