We are accelerating the adoption of electrified and more efficient transportation globally through effective charging infrastructure, electrified bus transportation networks, mobility data, and collaborative change labs.
Why It Matters
The transportation sector produces almost 30 percent of US carbon emissions and about one-quarter of global emissions. It is also growing fast. Electrifying that transportation in urban and suburban settings, and making it not only possible but convenient not to need a personal car, are the biggest near-term levers for driving system efficiency, reducing climate impacts and local pollution.
RMI works with electricity regulators, utilities, cities and transit authorities, fleet owners, service providers, manufacturers, real estate developers, and businesses throughout the United States. All stakeholders must work together to ensure that the benefits of transportation electrification are realized and accrue to all.
