Dr. Andy Frank Speech at Plug-In 2008 - VIDEO

Dr. Andy Frank, UC Davis, gives this keynote address at the Plug-In 2008 Conference. Frank is considered by many to be the father of the plug-in hybrid vehicle - and he and his students were building them long before the Prius.

To quote Bill Moore, EV World: "There are some folks you just can't help but like first time you meet them. For me one of those people is Dr. Andy Franks, professor of engineering at the University of California at Davis."

His UC Davis FutureCar and FutureTruck teams have consistently placed in the top rankings of these competitions, so he does more than theorize about EVs, he and his students make it happen."
