This month we have a guest speaker – Zane DeVitre-Shalauta, Graduate student – Climate Science and Policy EV Infrastructure
Zane is a graduate student in the Scripps Institute of Oceanography’s program in climate science and policy.
Transportation remains the largest source of carbon emissions in the state of California and decarbonizing that sector is going to be key to combating the climate crisis. Zane is currently planning to focus on this issue for his thesis project.
Zane is working on a project titled Leading the Charge: Ensuring the Future of EV Charging Infrastructure. Widespread EV adoption depends on reliable, equitable charging infrastructure. AB 1738 is a piece of legislation that aims to further this goal. This presentation will touch on the bill itself along with some proposed methods of making EV charging more affordable and accessible.
