Electrifying = A Fleeting Notion or A Charged Debate

The Pipeshop Venue: Main Stage

1:00pm – 1:30pm

How do we electrify shared mobility?

The electrification of cars enjoys the enthusiastic embrace of policymakers and the public, yet the focus is on car owners only. In Canada, two-thirds of EV owners are male; most have a graduate degree and an above-average income. Focusing on owners alone is clearly not a strategy to meet critical urban planning and climate objectives. So, what’s the alternative? This panel will examine how shared mobility – especially electric carsharing – has a much more significant impact and how we get there.
