Global Climate Action Summit

Energy, transportation & innovation

A discussion with u.s. climate alliance governors & business leaders

September 12, 2018 / 2:30-5pm PST / San Francisco, California

The global transport industry is changing rapidly, due to three revolutions: electrification, ride sharing and automation. Electric vehicle sales are on pace to reach over 1.6 million this year, up from just a few hundred thousand in 2016. However, in the same time period, cars passed power plants as the top source of US carbon emissions for the first time since 1978. This emissions pattern is expected to remain, even if electric cars move into the mainstream, unless a full decarbonizing of the transport sector is achieved. To do that, all options must be considered – including electrifying the vehicle fleet, alternative fuels and much more stringent efficiency measures across the board, and increasing public transport options – including ride sharing. 

Given the potential to provide deep energy and CO2 reductions, this session will look at the U.S. Climate Alliance Governor and industry experience in implementing and incentivizing the combination of transport electrification, automation and ride sharing. It will focus on celebrating first movers and interrogating successes and failures, exploring insights and learnings, and where to next.
