Monthly Forum: Is New York City Prepared for Electric Vehicles?March 16, 2022 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
- Where: Online
- Hosted by: GreenHomeNYC
- Go to event website »
Last year, the Dept. of Transportation and the Mayor’s Office of Climate and Sustainability published a bold vision for Electric Vehicles (EVs) in NYC, projecting that 400,000 gasoline vehicles might be switching to EVs by 2030, which would go a long way in helping the City meet its climate decarbonization goals. Yet there were only about 1,573 chargers in all of NYC at the time of publication. We will explore the huge gap between the City’s bold projections, the existing charging infrastructure, and the proposed strategies to narrow the gap. We are excited to hear the perspectives of the City, the electric utility and a private company that relies on EV charging for their operations. Q&A will follow the presentations.
In addition to the forum, our monthly volunteer orientation will take place right before the event, starting at 6p. If you’re interested in joining GreenHomeNYC as a volunteer, please review opportunities on our website, and register for a monthly orientation on Eventbrite.
We are not currently charging for online events, but attendees can donate to support GreenHomeNYC when they sign up.
