The transportation sector accounts for 42% of the greenhouse gas emissions in the Northeast U.S., making it the single largest contributor to the region’s carbon footprint. While cleaning up the transportation sector is a priority for states in the Northeast, it will require a massive amount of new infrastructure deployment and extensive retrofits to existing infrastructure in order to transform it. NECEC and AEG will convene leaders from the public and private sectors across the Northeast to share lessons learned, pain points and successes to build consensus on how we can wrap our arms around the enormous task of building a clean transportation sector. In particular we will look at the recent plans made by all states for public EV charging stations on Interstate highways and what infrastructure (charging and other technologies) is needed for both public and private entities and heavy duty electric truck fleets.

We also will delve into the community level perspective to assess how well regional plans address local needs and how to ensure this mass transition is done equitably.
