Automation, Electrification, and CAFE: Car Companies and Climate Change

Thursday October 26, 2:45 pm-3:45 pm

Automotive manufacturers and ride-sharing startups continue to promote advanced vehicle technology and alternative use models, ranging from extended-range electric cars to autonomous ride-sharing. Industry manufacturers are increasingly committing to energy efficiency and renewable energy—concurrently, vehicle fuel-economy standards that were adopted with the support of the industry have proven difficult to meet, and manufacturers are now requesting significant rollbacks. This interactive session will provide participants with guidance on redefining their focus on climate change at a time when CAFE standards are under scrutiny.
