Electric Vehicles: The Future of Development and Deployment
More than two million electric vehicles (EVs) were sold globally in 2018, a trend expected to grow over the coming decades. The smart deployment of EVs and EV infrastructure will be an important part of broader mobility planning and offers opportunities to connect markets and supply chains.
The CSIS Energy & National Security Program is pleased to convene this panel to discuss strategies and policies to develop and deploy EVs. Nick Albanese will outline BloombergNEF's report, Electric Vehicle Outlook 2019, to set the scene with the global forecast for EVs and the implications on the growth of the clean energy economy. Garrett Fitzgerald, with Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), will discuss its recent report, Driving a Shared, Electric, Autonomous Mobility Future, which evaluates mobility in China, India, and the United States. Lastly, Jonas Meckling will share his thoughts on how the United States can increase its commitment to EVs in the innovation, manufacturing, and deployment space under current and future policy landscapes.
This event is made possible by general support to CSIS and the CSIS Energy & National Security Program.
