The Problems of Widespread Usage of Electric Vehicles

Thursday, October 14, 2021, 5:00 – 6:15 p.m. Eastern time

Speaker:  Nick Nigro, Founder of Atlas Public Policy

Nigro’s slides are available here.

Our speaker, Nick Nigro, has nearly 20 years of experience managing teams of various disciplines and sizes with a focus on innovation and value creation. He is a nationally known expert on climate change policy, transportation electrification, and the greater use of data in policy analysis.

Transportation networks must be revamped or created to adapt to electric vehicles and new fuels. The Biden Administration has proposed set a new national goal that 50% of new car sales by 2030 be electric vehicles and large investments in electric charging stations. In March, the United States passed the milestone of 100,000 public chargers.

Mr. Nigro will address the conditions necessary for the widespread purchase of electric vehicles, including sufficient number of charging stations, extended battery range, and how quickly electric cars can be charged.  After Mr. Nigro speaks we will open the webinar to questions.
