Focusing policy and investment on high-mileage ridehail vehicles can amplify the impact of electrification and ameliorate inequitable access to electric vehicles. World Resources Institute will host a virtual/in-person panel in We Mean Business Coalition’s COP26 Business Pavilion theatre room on Wednesday, November 10, bringing together Uber with a panel of private- and public-sector stakeholders. The discussion will highlight opportunities for private-sector innovation and public policy to accelerate decarbonization and increase access to electrified transportation by focusing on policies to electrify ridehailing. WRI will introduce research examining opportunities and challenges on the road to 100% EV use by ridehail drivers.
