Are we ready for long-haul electrified trucking?
A mini-conference Friday, Jan. 20, will discuss the potential to create a carbon-free transport corridor from Montreal to Chicago.
Organized by civil and environmental engineering professors Rupp Carriveau and Hanna Maoh, the event will bring together international experts to consider the vehicles, energy, and critical infrastructure needed.
They will share early results from research on the impact transport electrification has had on fleet owners, fueling stations, power grids, and businesses.

- Anneke Smit, director of the Centre for Cities;
- Dave Arkell, chief executive officer at 360 Energy;

The conference will run 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the EPICentre meeting room, located on the second floor of the Joyce Entrepreneurship Centre. The $50 registration fee includes coffee and a networking lunch.
