Electrified Community Carsharing

January 26, 2021 | 12-1pm


Event Description

Electric carsharing can reduce reliance on private cars and increase the use of more sustainable transportation options. Electric carsharing can also greatly benefit underserved communities, often disproportionately affected by air pollution and located farther away from public transportation services.

The carsharing sector continues to expand and change, with new players entering the space, new technologies becoming available, and consumer preferences shifting.

Several programs in progress in Denver, Los Angeles and other cities to demonstrate the benefits of electric transportation and bridge the gap to accessibleclean transportation. 

This webinar will highlight the progress of the Clean Rural Shared Electric Mobility (CRuSE) project in Hood River, Oregon. CRuSE seeks to bring all-electric carsharing to rural communities and make them more accessible for low-income residents. The webinar will also include guest speakers on other projects and carsharing platforms. 

Kelly Yearick, Program Manager at Forth will join Peter Krahenbuhl, CEO and Executive Director at Colorado CarShare, Nick DiParma, Director Of Business Development at Wunder Mobility, and Juan Carlos (J.C.) Garcia Sanchez, Environmental Justice Policy Analyst at the Policy Institute for Energy, Economy and the Environment at University of California Davis
