Cancelled: EBC Infrastructure Webinar: Moving Toward Net Zero – Mass Transit Electrification

March 30, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:45 am

This webinar has been cancelled. Please reach out to EBC with any questions.

This EBC Infrastructure webinar will explore the electrification of mass transit fleets as a key element in the transition to a sustainable, green transportation economy. Transit agencies have frequently been trailblazers on environmental issues, and transportation electrification is no different. The large-scale transition from fossil fuel to electric buses offers an exciting step toward a sustainable transportation future. However, significant technical, operational, and funding challenges must be addressed to realize the vision of an electrified mass transit network.

The program will be kicked off by Glen Berkowitz of A Better City who will introduce the program and provide a perspective of its applicability and importance to Boston and other urban areas across the country. This program will include presentations on transit electrification from various perspectives within the industry.

  • Marc DeSchamp, Jacobs will provide perspective on the operational, infrastructure, and funding challenges associated with transit fleet electrification based on Jacobs experience working with some of the largest transit agencies in North America
  • James Cater, Eversource will discuss the impacts of large-scale electrification on the power grid, and some of the changes which will be required
  • Alan Westenskow, Proterra will offer a perspective as a manufacturer of electric vehicles and vehicle charging equipment on how the industry will meet the challenge of rapidly growing demand and how transit service providers can best plan for the deployment of a complete fleet of electric buses

A robust panel discussion with the audience will conclude the webinar.

General Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (1.75 training contact hours). Certificates are automatically provided via email link for registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
