About this session

COVID-19 Model Electric Mobility & Green Vehicle Initiatives in a Post-COVID World

An overview of global approaches to electrification and other alternative fuel sources and infrastructure policy initiatives will focus on the bus, micro-transit, taxi, and other for-hire industry segments and will reveal the latest in best practices and the state of the industry. Post-pandemic, as concerns are raised about increased usage of private automobiles, both challenges and opportunities presented with respect to electrification and its impact on short-term and long-term mobility will be explored. The development of new business models, possible public-private partnerships in the EV arena for increased use of rental vehicles, car sharing, and integration into taxi, for-hire and EV fleets will be discussed. Global concerns on infrastructure, grid impacts and the future of connected and autonomous electric vehicles will be addressed.

Moderator: Prachi Vakharia, WOMANIUM

Panelists: Adam Gromis, Uber Timothy Lipman, Transportation Sustainability Research Center at UC Berkeley Tegan Molloy, Forth Kelly Blynn, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) Adrian Gomez, Green Light Labs
