TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that discusses the development of the electric vehicle network. Electrification of the vehicle fleet will be a major change to the transportation sector. This may have a significant effect on the environment with a reduction in vehicle emissions.
The presenters will discuss the programs and funding sources that are supporting the deployment of electric vehicle infrastructure. Several programs, such as the Federal Highway Administration’s Alternative Fuels Corridor program, support the development of alternative fuel sources and electric charging stations. Presenters will also discuss public partnership agreements and their role in facilitating this transition. The material in this webinar supplements other webinars focusing on electric vehicle deployment including the Straight to Recording series on the Alternative Fuels Corridor Program and the April 25, 2018, TRB Webinar: Technology Changes Influencing the Decline of Vehicle Emissions.
