About This Meeting

Chairman, CEO and President, PG & E Company, Anthony Earley, Jr., addressed the Detroit Economic Club on Thursday, December 11th, 2014, to discuss electric vehicles and U.S. energy.

Earley said, “When you look at higher penetrations of electric vehicles together with cleaner power sources, it has the potential for cutting national carbon emissions by 40 percent. For the sake of comparison, to achieve similar emissions reductions by improving gas or diesel powered engines you’d need a vehicle that gets over 95 miles per gallon. It’s unrealistic to think that we’re going to get there successfully without substantially increasing electrification.”
