California will phase out gasoline-powered cars by 2035 joining 15 countries that have built a roadmap to
boost technical innovation toward a zero-emission transportation and develop regulations to accelerate
the transition from fossil fuel vehicles to electrical vehicles. From a sustainable engineering perspective,
an electrical vehicle will emit less greenhouse gas at the car/truck level but the benefit on climate change
involves a large array of additional factors. Momin Quddus, speaker, will present an overview of the EV
technology and its place in achieving sustainable future for humanity. He will discuss the future of EVs and
their implication in slowing down global warming and climate change. In addition, he will touch on interest
on EV in the financial markets.
