New Jersey's Energy Future: Electric Vehicles

An NJ Roundtable that delivered both a high-level look at the future of EVs and a slightly more granular discussion of roadblocks and obstacles to progress

EV roundtable 1

The world is turning away from fossil fuels as Britain, France, and China all have announced plans to phase out gasoline vehicles. In New Jersey, electrifying the state’s transportation system—the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions— is shaping up as a top priority in January when a new Legislature and Governor take office. How best for New Jersey to move beyond a petroleum-based transportation sector?

To address these and other questions NJ Spotlight convened on December 14, New Jersey's Energy Future: Electric Vehicles, a roundtable that brought together industry experts, legislators, and thought leaders for a far-ranging forum on a variety of critical issues.
