The transportation sector is the largest and fastest growing source of climate pollution in the United States. Trucks account for over a quarter of on-road transportation greenhouse gas emissions and are also a major source of health-harming air pollution. As manufacturers embrace EV technology at an unprecedented pace and scale, what does the future hold for electric trucks?
What types of federal incentives can be put in place to cut down on infrastructure charging costs? How can optimized charging and the use of on-site batteries and solar make the move to electric trucks more affordable and sustainable?
This virtual event – the first in a series of three – will examine the future of electric trucks with an emphasis on the EV charging infrastructure supply chain, federal initiatives for large-scale charging installations, and health and equity concerns for frontline communities.
