Can electric vehicles play a role in advancing equity in underserved and historically marginalized communities?

A new report published by Clean Energy Group, Electric Vehicles and Equity: How EVs Work, Their Pros and Cons, and the Role They Can Play in Making Our Communities Stronger, explores this question in four parts. The report begins with an overview of electric vehicle costs, performance characteristics, and environmental and health impacts, then considers possible pathways for electric vehicles to deliver tangible benefits to communities, including electric school buses and harnessing energy stored in electric vehicle batteries to power critical services in an emergency. It concludes with a discussion of some of the challenges limiting equitable adoption of electric vehicles and potential solutions to help overcome them.

Clean Energy Group is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, June 6 with report author Michael Brower of Cantus Firmus Consulting and Nathan King from electric vehicle charging company Itselectric. Panelists will discuss potential pathways for electric vehicle deployment to lower harmful emissions, reduce transportation expenses, and increase energy resilience in historically marginalized communities. REGISTER HERE
