Plugging into Energy Independence with 150 MPG Vehicles (Part 1 of 2)

Plugging into Energy Independence with 150 MPG Vehicles (Part 1 of 2) – Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming – 2007-07-12 – Continuing its examination of promising technologies to cut our nation’s oil dependence and global warming pollution, this Thursday the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming will explore the potential of plug-in hybrid vehicles. Plug-in hybrids are similar to regular hybrids in that they have both an electric and gasoline motor, but are also fitted with an additional battery pack that can be plugged in, supplying enough power to travel 20 to 60 miles on a single charge rather than on gasoline. Combined with more renewable energy powering the electric grid, and cleaner ethanol fuels, plug-in hybrids can be a significant factor in the drive towards energy independence and putting the brakes on global warming. The hearing will be followed by a hands-on demonstration of the cars on the Capitol grounds. Witnesses: Frank Gaffney, President, Center for Security Policy; Rob Lowe, Actor and Advocate; David Vieau, President and CEO, A123 Systems; Will Wynn, Mayor of Austin, Texas.
