Additional Information

At this month’s Midday Science Cafe, we’ll hear from Priyanka Mohanty, Senior Research Analyst in the International Energy Group at Berkeley Lab about the staggering statistics that will result from this effort. For instance, the transition is predicted to save 150,000 premature deaths, avoid $1.3 trillion in environmental and health costs, cut $2.7 trillion in transportation costs, and support a net increase of over 2 million jobs, all by 2035. We’ll then hear from Ted Lamm, Senior Research Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Center for Law, Energy & the Environment, who will discuss a new research initiative that will work with local governments across California to develop equitable infrastructure plans that focus on the needs and capacities of the most under-resourced and highest priority communities; for instance, charging stations in communities that are less likely to have access to private and workplace charging opportunities. Join us to learn more about smart policy solutions for California’s ambitious energy and electrification goals!
