For the upcoming September Green Drinks, I am excited to share the news that Lew Fulton, a renown transportation studies expert from UC Davis, is going to share how he sees the transportation marketplace transforming over the next 30+ years.  It should be a great discussion as it will bring together three hot topics: vehicle electrification, automation, and shared mobility.

Thanks to everyone that came out earlier this month to hear Linh Tran share with us the market trends and the future of residential battery storage.  We had a great turn-out.
Green Drinks is looking for sponsors. So be bold, step forward, and buy your fellow sustainability colleagues a beer by sponsoring the event.  Please let me know if you are interested.

Best, Aaron
