Powering All Transportation with Electricity
About 40% of all the CO2 released in Massachusetts comes from transportation – moving people and goods from place to place using energy from fossil fuels. Our Governor has pledged to cut emissions to net zero by 2050, which requires all-renewable electric power for transportation. How can we get there?
This talk shows the way, using electricity for cars and buses, light and heavy trucks, ferries, boats, construction vehicles, and even airplanes. Your guides are three members of a team developing an energy plan for the island: Edgartown engineer/consultant Tom Soldini, Vineyard Power General Manager Erik Peckar, and Edgartown Energy Committee Chair Alan Strahler.
