Electrifying Conversations provides an opportunity for New Zealand's transportation thought-leaders including representatives from industry, government and education, to come together to share updates on transport innovation being developed both internationally and domestically, to discuss what is being done to build a sustainable transport strategy for New Zealand, and to come up with ways for the sector to better work together in order to help move New Zealand towards energy independence and emissions reduction.
Hosted by the Rutherford Research Institute and supported by the Strategic Science Investment Fund, the aim of the event is to create solutions, be inspired by, and connect the relevant parties to increase New Zealand’s ability to divest from fossil fuels and work towards carbon free transport solutions.
