October 13, 2017 – Electric Vehicles and Their Technology Drivers

October 13, 2017 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm

There are now over a half-million plug-in electric vehicles on the roads in North America, along with thousands of public charging stations (EVSEs). Our October speaker, stanton_zeffStanton Zeff, will review EVs and their technology drivers, and present us with an analysis of 100% electric vs. internal combustion engine (ICE) operating costs. His presentation will conclude with first-hand observations on Nissan Leaf ownership as well as the opportunity to view one of the first commercially available models in the DFW area.

Stanton’s life-long dream of owning a battery electric vehicle (BEV) was finally realized with the commercial availability of the Nissan Leaf in 2011. Since then, he has promoted electric cars at every opportunity, eventually leading to his involvement in the North Texas Electric Auto Association (NTEAA). He enjoys passing gas stations (without stopping) and giving presentations on his EV experience.

Stanton holds a BSEE from the University of Texas at Austin and an MS in Telecommunications from SMU. He is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Texas with over twenty-five years experience in the telecommunications field. In addition, he is a Senior Member of IEEE and Past Chairman of the Dallas Section of the IEEE Communications and Vehicular Technology Society, where he received an award for Outstanding Service to the society.
