Electrifying vehicles in ridehailing services, such as Uber and Lyft, is critical to accelerating the EV transition, creating a profitable investment opportunity for building fast-charging infrastructure, and equitably expanding EV charging capacity for all.
E.J. joined RMI in 2014 and is part of the Carbon-Free Mobility team. He leads several initiatives including the Mobility Innovation Lab—designed to unlock innovative solutions through multi-stakeholder convening—and passenger mobility focused on bus and TNC electrification. He also has expertise related to the intersection of electric utilities, regulation, rate design and vehicle electrification. Current projects include strategic support for the complete electrification of Bermuda’s public bus fleet, and data-driven charging infrastructure optimization for TNC electrification. Previously, EJ was the program manager for the 2019 MIL Project Accelerator, which brought together 70 participants, faculty, and facilitators for a 4-day intensive work session designed to accelerate 6 transportation electrification projects from around the country.
Prior to joining RMI, E.J. worked in aerospace for Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Materials Research & Design.
