MN EV Owners
Join us to drive the change!
MN Electric Vehicle Owners (MNEVO) provides a forum for Minnesota plug-in vehicle (BEV and PHEV) owners to connect, share their experiences and learn more about EV related topics. We meet every second month in various locations. Our membership and meetings are free and open to anyone who owns or is interested in shifting to drive electric.
MNEVOwners provides a forum to meet with EV owners, share your experiences, ask questions and just enjoy connecting with others. People shift to driving electric for many reasons, and it is good to learn from different viewpoints. Meetings are also a great place to see new vehicle makes and models.
New technologies, new vehicles and new ways to power your drive. There are so many new things constantly happening in this industry and many of them affect the ways we choose, charge and use our vehicles. We will have presentations and new discussion topics at each meeting.
As EV owners, we can make a difference by simply sharing our experiences with the general public and key stake-holders. Please see the calendar below for upcoming events and sign up for the ones that fit your schedule. You don't have to be an expert on all things EV, just share why and how you drive electric.
Our Next Meeting:
EV Discussion Series
EV Discussion Series: Level 2 charging tech and using blockchain technology in charging, Thursday, May 21, 6:30-8:00PM
This week we will be joined by Matthew Blackler from ZEF Energy, who will provide inside perspectives on two Level 2 charging tech developments:
1. Hardware Tech: The ZEFNET Pro is a new product about to hit the streets of MN, and we will walk through the design process and highlight particular features that make the design unique. We will hear directly from engineers working on the products and get a sneak peek of a new product about to hit the commercial market.
2. Software Tech: ZEF is involved in a project with a utility in Sacramento, CA, where local energy transactions on the campus are being journaled by a blockchain system to "track" where packets of energy flow around the distribution infrastructure within the facility. The ZEFNET cloud platform has been interfaced with third party software to allow this to happen. What is blockchain? What's a local energy transaction? What's it got to do with EV charging? Why should I care? Does Jasmine Green tea lower one's blood pressure more than Earl Grey? All these questions, and more, will be answered.
