Endgame: Decarbonization—How do We Get There?: Exploring EVs, Electrification and Policy Priorities in the Transportation Sector

About this event

The Block Center for Technology and Society and the Wilton E. Scott Institute for Energy Innovation are partnering to host an important conversation on national decarbonization strategies.

Endgame: Decarbonization—How do We Get There?: Exploring EVs, Electrification and Policy Priorities in the Transportation Sector

While nations make underwhelming progress on global climate commitments and the Biden Administration plans implementation of its newly-passed infrastructure package, a U.S. strategy to transition to clean energy hangs in the balance. Any approach must involve electrification of the transportation sector – no small lift. How can we ensure that the future of vehicle electrification and charging is contributing to critical decarbonization goals? Join us on Zoom for a discussion of how we get there.
