Accelerating Transportation Electrification in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap set a GHG emissions reduction target for the next decade at 50% reduction below the 1990 level in 2030 and at least net zero statewide greenhouse gas emissions in 2050. In the Clean Energy and Climate Plan (CECP) for 2025 and 2030, a blueprint was established that outlined the strategies, policies, and actions that will put the Commonwealth on a pathway to achieve our 2050 decarbonization goals, equitably and affordably, with major new initiatives advancing decarbonization of buildings, transportation, and electricity sectors. Many opportunities for public engagement exist to help craft the CECP but what’s a good introduction to how Massachusetts will make transportation electrification (TE) a reality on a massive scale? With electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers and EV charging equipment suppliers revving up their engines to meet this demand, a clear understanding of the MA transportation market characteristics, utility programs, state incentives and interactions with other market sectors and programs is needed, as well as knowing how to navigate federal efforts to build up resilient, fast-charging grid infrastructure. Join our panel of industry experts that will share their perspectives on this exciting movement toward TE, the opportunities it presents as well as what they think will be in store for 2022 and beyond.
