The first ever Political Laboratorium about Electric Cars was held on May 18th 2015 at Kattesunder 12, in the centre of Copenhagen City. 

The Alternative believes that together we can create much better political solutions than we do today. That is why we invite everyone both in Denmark and abroad to send questions, ideas and input for developing The Alternative’s political proposals.
The Alternative will generate policies together with citizens of all ages and in all parts of the country through events and workshops. We will focus on challenges, opportunities and good examples. Ideas will be gathered which can be developed into solid political proposals and serious sustainable scenarios for the future.

Martin Messer Thomsen from EV TEST. One of Denmarks most knowable men when it comes to Electric Cars, the most optimal way of driving them and where new laws about Electric Cars can be implemented so it makes most possible sense for Denmark. To the left of Martin is Christian Poll who is the lead candidate for The Alternative within the areas of Green Technology and ECO living.

Jon Seemann Pedersen from The Alternative talked about Self Driving Cars and how it is key to also include this new element to the future of transportation.

There is no doubt that Nikola Tesla would have supported the Electric Car today. Allready over 100 years ago he had the solution for a Fossil Free Future. He is the Godfather of the CO2 Green Drive Project and should be canonized as a Green Saint.

Now we will see what the brainstorm will turn into in the official politics of The Alternative and later into Danish politics in the near future!

Thanks to David Morrow for joining us during the day and documenting the moment!

After this POLAB was held, we sent out the working paper to several of our friends and partners. Not long after that, the Danish political party "Radikal Venstre" went out in the Danish media and announced several of the concepts and proposals we had come up with during the day. This including a "Green Licence plate" for electric cars. All we can say about this is that The Alternative is all for tranceparency and sharing, but we also like to get credit for the ideas, but we also like to say "You are Welcome!"
