Please join the Guarini Center and a group of experts from industry, government and NGOs for a discussion on “Expanding Electric Vehicles in New York City”.

To achieve its ambitious climate goals, New York City will need to aggressively reduce the number of gasoline powered vehicles on the roads, which currently contribute roughly thirty percent of city-wide emissions. Transitioning towards electric vehicles will almost certainly be part of the solution. Yet, to date, the rollout of electric vehicles (EVs) in the city has been relatively slow. At this upcoming event, experts will examine the legal and economic obstacles that have hindered the expansion of EVs in New York City to date and how to overcome such obstacles.
