Do you want to know more about developments in the plug-in vehicle market?  If yes, then save out the evening of Tuesday, July 27th to attend Public Night of the Plug-in 2010 conference in San Jose.

This event debuted in San Jose two years ago, and took place in Long Beach last year.  So, there is certainly potential for it to not return to the bay area until 2012.

There is no need to worry about advance registration because the $10 entrance fee to Public Night is payable at the door.

Cars targeted for display include plug-in hybrids (2010 Prius Plug-in), extended range plug-in hybrids (Chevrolet Volt, 2010 Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid), and pure battery electric vehicles (Mitsubishi i MiEV, Nissan LEAF, smart fortwo electric drive.)

It is a great opportunity to hear the following key players in a panel discussion moderated by Mark Duvall, Director, Electric Transportation, Electric Power Research Institute:

  • Martin Eberhard, Co-Founder, Tesla Motors
  • Bill Nye, “The Science Guy”
  • Jessie Deeter, Producer, Who Killed the Electric Car? & Revenge of the Electric Car
  • Chelsea Sexton, Founder, The Lightning Rod Foundation & former General Motors EV1 Specialist.

See this link for details about Public Night. And for those of you who want more, there is a full conference spanning most of the week that you can learn about and register for here.

Come back to this blog after the conference for some highlights.
