EP27 Beyond Journeys: Maz Shar, EV Advocate: Addressing misunderstandings in EV charging
This is a conversation with Maz Shar
🎙️ Maz has a background in computer science and has been developing software for products and robots in our homes. During his career, he has shared an interest in emerging technologies such as VR and AR and their impact on society. Often these can be many years away, so Maz has learned to understand the chasm between hype and reality and the challenges of early adoption. Maz has been driving electric cars for the past 2 years and during this time has played an active role within the EV community sharing thoughts on the path to mass adoption. Maz is currently studying AI at King’s College London with the ambition to contribute towards more intelligent and cleaner technology.
🎧 In this episode of the Beyond Journeys series on the @Boundless Podcast, Maz talks about:
💡 1.) Why and how an EV is more convenient that a petrol or diesel car
💡 2.) Common misconceptions about EVs and areas of confusion
💡 3.) Why it’s important to know that different brands have different charging curves and what to look for when buying an EV
💡 4.) What sort of EV infrastructure the UK will need for those without access to home charger
💡 5.) Why a bigger battery isn’t necessarily a better battery
