There are about 500 electric vehicles in Alaska. The landscape is improving for running electric cars cheaply and for long distances. But there are still barriers to overcome. Fairbanks scientists are inviting manufacturers, utility regulators, transportation analysts and just general motorheads to a two-day virtual workshop. The workshop is 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16 and Wednesday, June 17.
