It seems that the climate change conference in Copenhagen wasn’t a total loss … at least not at a local level.
Fourteen major cities from around the world announced the formation of the C40 Electric Vehicle Network and will work together with Mitsubishi, Renault/Nissan and the Chinese auto maker BYD Auto move forward with the introduction of the infrastructure necessary to support the introduction of electric vehicles.
The C40 Electric Vehicle Network is part of the larger C40 group. This is a group of the world’s largest cities that have committed to tackling climate change. Melbourne is part of the group but Brisbane … a city that is beginning to struggle with major traffic problems and air quality … is not.
