National Drive Electric Week is September 12-20
So far there are 162 events planned across the country for the 2015 National Drive Electric Week!

Visit the events web page to see what’s happening near you – this is a great opportunity to volunteer, visit with other EV enthusiasts and learn more about electric cars. Drive Electric Week is a celebration to heighten awareness of plug-in vehicles and highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more. Events include car shows, parades, fairs, ride-and-drives, screening of the movie “Revenge of the Electric Car,” and more. The week is sponsored by the Sierra Club, The Electric Auto Association and PlugIn America.

Survey From Clean Technica
Are you thinking about buying or leasing an EV in the future? Clean Technica wants your help. They have posted a survey asking what you’ll be looking for in your EV, and what features are most important to you. Visit their website to participate. Clean Technica is also home to a nicely done graphical presentation on the reasons behind EV adoption in the US.

Car-Charging Roads?
You’ve probably heard about one of the newest car-charging research trends: highways that charge the car wirelessly. In 2013, the South Korean town of Gumi installed wireless-charging hardware in 7.5 miles of road, for use by buses. Most recently, England announced It will use wireless hardware embedded in the road surface to allow people to charge as they drive.
The government agency Highways England says it has already completed a feasibility study, and will now ask companies to tender bids for prototype systems.
