Presented by Generation 180, this talk will examine big-picture, big-impact EV questions with three key Federal Agencies—Energy, Transportation, and EPA—to learn how they’re working to advance this critical clean energy solution. The administration has quickly identified electric transportation as a priority.
- How quickly can America get to 100 percent electric car sales?
- How does electrifying transportation equitably fit into President Biden’s commitment to cut U.S. carbon emissions in half by 2030?
- What is the role of charging infrastructure, public transit, and fleet electrification in helping get us there?
- Andrew Wishnia, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Climate Policy, U.S. Department of Transportation
- Dr. Rachael Nealer, Senior Transportation Advisor. U.S. Department of Energy
- Dr. Philip Fine, Principal Deputy Associate Administrator for Policy, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Each will offer a unique perspective on accomplishments thus far and their respective agency’s vision for the future of transportation electrification.
