The popularity of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is growing throughout the U.S. Incentive programs can help municipalities and states expand electric fleets and consumer vehicles to help grow the clean energy market and improve air quality. At this webinar, we will discuss a new report about the potential for EVs in the northeast, the reasons states and local agencies want to advance EV adoption, and some ways that states are encouraging EV adoption through incentives for consumer vehicles, fleet vehicles, and workplace charging.
- Betsy Glynn, Northeast Regional Manager, Center for Sustainable Energy will moderate the discussion.
- Mark LeBel, Staff Attorney, Acadia Center will provide context for the role of EVs as the Northeast region seeks to lower air pollution and carbon emissions. He will outline a new report from Acadia, Conservation Law Foundation and Sierra Club, â€œCharging Up: The Role of States, Utilities, and the Auto Industry in Dramatically Accelerating Electric Vehicle Adoption in Northeast and Mid-Atlantic States.â€
- Nicole Appenzeller, Project Manager for Clean Transportation, Center for Sustainable Energy will discuss electric vehicle incentive programs using programs in Connecticut and Massachusetts as examples.
- Sejal Shah, Environmental Analyst, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection will discuss the Massachusetts Electric Vehicle Incentive Program for Fleets and Workplace Charging.
