Announcing the publication of ILLUME’s new whitepaper and ArcGIS StoryMap
Transportation electrification (TE) has emerged as a crucial decarbonization strategy in the fight against climate change. States, particularly California, are leading the way in transitioning to emissions-free transportation. In September 2022, California’s Governor issued Executive Order N-79-20, directing that all new passenger vehicles and trucks sold in the state be electric by 2035. While TE presents immense benefits, the equitable distribution of these benefits is vital to ensure a just transition. In ILLUME’s newly published whitepaper and ArcGIS StoryMap, we explore the barriers to equitable TE and propose strategies to enhance electric vehicle (EV) access in Black and Brown Communities.
