Transportation Electrification

Transportation is the top source of greenhouse gas emissions in the US. The sector is undergoing substantial technological, infrastructure, and policy changes as more electric vehicles hit the road.

The Nicholas Institute for Energy, Environment & Sustainability‚Äôs transportation electrification efforts are focused on advancing stakeholder collaborations, data analytics, and emerging best practices in the field. From expansion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure to new technologies for electric cars, trucks, buses, and bicycles to an evolving policy landscape, the Nicholas Institute seeks to understand trends and collaborate across this developing space. 

Initiatives include co-facilitating the multi-sector Southeast Electric Transportation Regional Initiative (SETRI), collaboration with state and territory energy and transportation officials through the Southeast Regional Electric Vehicle Information Exchange (SE REVI), and more.
