Join NECEC and the Québec Government Office in Boston for a webinar from NECEC's Emerging Trend Series

The transportation sector accounts for the majority of carbon emissions in the Northeastern United States and across North America. To help states and regions reach their ambitious decarbonization goals and transition to a clean energy economy, policymakers and industry leaders are rapidly accelerating innovations to modernize and electrify the transportation sector and making meaningful investments in electric vehicle infrastructure. This webinar on February 9, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m, will feature an overview of electric vehicle initiatives underway in Québec and the Northeast from policy experts and a panel discussion with industry leaders who stand at the forefront of this sector.
