6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, with program beginning at 6:30PM
California’s transportation sector is responsible for over 40 percent of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and emits more climate pollution than any other sector of the economy. While California has made tremendous progress in meeting our GHG reduction goals, transportation emissions have proven challenging to mitigate and continue to rise.
California leads the nation with ambitious programs and goals, including the Zero Emissions Vehicle Program and an Executive Order setting a goal for five million electric vehicles on California’s roads by 2030. However, despite the policy direction, significant work remains to sufficiently decarbonize the state’s passenger and freight at the speed required.
Please join E2 and leading players in this space to learn more about the challenges and opportunities facing transportation electrification, including emerging technologies, policies, funding mechanisms, and partnerships.
Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be provided.
