About This Class
Transportation is the leading source of climate pollution in the United States. This course is focused on a key pathway to reduce those harmful emissions: the electrification of our cars, trucks, and buses. We’ll examine the current federal landscape for regulation of tailpipe emissions and the range of clean transportation policy options, including a particular focus on the role of electric utilities and how electric vehicles can support a smarter, cleaner electricity grid. Through discussion, exercises and simulations, students will learn how to analyze issues, marshal evidence, and understand the motivations of stakeholders in the energy and transportation sectors.
