Roadmap 11

2018 Program

Roadmap 11: Test Drive the Future

"The future is already here - it's just not evenly distributed."
- William Gibson, science fiction author.

Roadmap invites participants to "test drive the future," learning from industry leaders as well as the leading communities and regional markets. Programming will be organized around these tracks:

Cars. This track will focus on the accelerating adoption of electric cars and other electric vehicles, as well as new forms of shared and autonomous mobility. Sessions will explore the emergence of electric vehicles in new market segments, such as transit; the natural synergies between electric, connected, shared, and autonomous mobility; and aggressive new public-private marketing strategies.

Charging. Charging infrastructure is evolving quickly to meet the needs of millions of new electric vehicle drivers. This track will explore how to make charging easier, faster, and more commonplace; an in-depth discussion of the Electrify America plan to invest $2 billion over the next 10 years; and ways that electric utilities and the grid are gaining from transportation electrification.

Community. The community track will focus on the broader "ecosystem" needed for the market to expand. Sessions will highlight programs designed to bring electric mobility benefits to underserved communities, leading "smart city" efforts, and new policy developments.

Cutting Edge. New this year, the "cutting edge" track will feature "Ignite" style talks of 5-7 minutes, hands-on workshops, and emerging topics. Come learn more about tomorrow's news today!

Utility electric vehicle programs often attempt to address equity by dedicating a minimum percentage of charging stations to low income communities, but this approach is limited at best. Other electric vehicle programs may only focus on "equitable access," but more is needed like community engagement and maximizing economic opportunities. This hands-on workshop will unpack what equity means in the context of transportation electrification and discuss best practices, strategies, and components for developing effective equity-centered electric vehicle programs.

Recent headlines have been full of commitments from various countries to achieve 100% zero-emission vehicles sales or even ban the sale of diesel or gasoline cars by a certain date, usually 2050 or earlier. For example, 13 governments, including California, Oregon, and Germany have committed to "make all passenger vehicle sales in our jurisdictions ZEVs as fast as possible, and no later than 2050" and 12 major cities including London, Milan, Mexico City, and Los Angeles have committed to "ensuring a major area of our city is zero emission by 2030". But what lies behind these headlines? How would such actions be implemented and enforced? What policies and investments would be required to support these goals? Are they constructive, or a distraction? This session will dig into the details behind the headlines.
