Webinar: New support for electric vehicles

Webinar on the Green Bank’s new method to advance the electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure market

Special Guest: Sue Hall, CEO of the Carbon Neutral Business Network

Date: Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

EVs are cleaner than conventional automobiles to begin with, and as more renewables power the electricity grid their fuel gets cleaner over time. Have you ever wondered if there’s a way to value that impact? Join this webinar to learn our plans for capturing and monetizing the environmental benefits of driving electric. 

The Green Bank is a founding member of the EV Charging Carbon Coalition, a group of organizations committed to advancing EV charging infrastructure with the help of voluntary carbon credit purchasers. This coalition includes the Carbon Neutral Cities Alliance; Electrify America; EVgo, Exelon, and Siemens. The group recently developed a methodology to quantify the greenhouse gas emissions reduced when an EV displaces a conventional vehicle, and to measure those reductions as electricity is dispensed during EV charging sessions. This opens up a potential new value stream for EV charging station owners.

Join us to learn about our plans to deliver better revenue and economics for EV charging infrastructure, supporting the local market by aggregating and selling carbon offsets on behalf of station owners.

About Live Green CT

Live Green Connecticut! is a 501 (C ) (3) public charity founded in 2009. The signature event, Live Green Connecticut! Family Festival, was held at Taylor Farm Park, in Norwalk, the third week of September from 2010 – 2015, and brought together a variety of people from throughout the state. Thousands were provided environmental education and the opportunity to learn from each other in an open and friendly setting. Highlights included delicious local food, great music, hundreds of sustainability exhibitors, electric vehicle test drives provided by the Ford Go Further Tour, electric bikes, keynote speakers, children’s activities, educational panels, magic, pony rides, a petting zoo and so much more. Live Green Connecticut Festival was a zero food waste event. Food scraps recovered from the festival were composted and returned to Fodor Farm in Norwalk. The festival’s motto was “Where Green Meets Mainstream.”

Since 2010, Live Green Connecticut has brought together over 20,000 community members/leaders, tasks forces, business leaders, non-profits organizations, institutions, regional stakeholders, houses of worship, and municipal leaders, at over 200 workshops, events, conferences, symposiums and festivals throughout the state. Highlights include, the Resilient CT Workshop at Yale and Fairfield University, Green Drinks Networking Events, “Help a Neighbor Out” Solar Campaign, Fairfield County Sustainable Community’s Reception, Energy Management Workshops and The Green Faire Business Expo. In 2018 we launched the Regional Conference on Sustainable Development series wich launched February 7th at Grace Farms. which featured integrating the Global Goals into Local Action.

We are excited about launching and delivering a new platform of programs and initiatives in 2018 including ‘Start in Your Own Front Yard.

Live Green Connecticut! is located, along with Norwalk Preservation Trust, Norwalk Land Trust and Norwalk Grows in shared working space in the beautifully restored farm house, originally built in 1802, at historic Fodor Farm.
