We have the technology needed to drive the clean energy future, but what policies must we adopt now to actually reach that goal? In part two of our three-part series on electrifying transportation, host Sara Baldwin speaks with electric vehicle and electricity policy experts to explore the most critical policies needed for an all-electric transportation transition that also helps achieve a carbon-free grid within 15 years. We dive into the current state of play of federal EV and charging infrastructure policies, a federal clean electricity standard, policies to enhance America’s economic competitiveness, and approaches to ensure an equitable transition. You won’t want to miss this inside scoop on America’s clean energy policy landscape!
