Electric vehicles provide a new opportunity for cleaner and more efficient transportation, but how do they work here in Minnesota? Join Jukka Kukkonen, Fresh Energy electric vehicle consultant, on Tuesday, February 27, as he presents at the University of Minnesota Rochester Connects speaker series about the technologies behind this shift, models available in Minnesota, and how fellow Minnesotans are using and charging their vehicles. Bring your own questions for conversation following the presentation.
Jukka Kukkonen is the founder of PlugInConnect, a Minnesota-based electric vehicle market and technology consulting firm. He has helped organizations to build successful strategies for the rapidly developing plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market in the areas of apartment, condominium, workplace and DC fast charging. Jukka has given dozens of electric vehicle presentations and workshops since 2010. He has trained various stakeholders from architects and auto salespeople to utility company personnel and public utility commission staff. In 2012, he started the MN PEV Owners Circle that has grown to become one of the largest and most active regional plug-in vehicle owner groups in the nation. In 2012, Jukka was honored with a Certificate of Recognition from Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton’s office for his work with the electric vehicle market in Minnesota, and in 2013 he received the Sustainable Saint Paul Award.
