Rapid electrification of the transportation sector is essential to reaching the U.S. goal of 50 percent plug-in electric vehicle (EV) sales by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050. It’s estimated that the transportation sector in the United States contributes to 29 percent of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, making it the largest contributor of U.S. GHG emissions, with an urgent need to decarbonize. Beyond decarbonization, gas powered vehicles pollute the air and are linked to premature deaths that disproportionately affect low-income communities. The future of the auto industry is electric, but first we’ll need to address current challenges to rapid EV deployment.
This webinar will feature female experts who are leading the way in the development and adoption of EV technologies. The webinar will focus on current EV advances and overcoming existing challenges to rapid EV adoption, highlighting programs that can successfully mobilize consumers’ purchasing decisions to favor EVs.
