ARLINGTON September 9 – Adam Borison, leader of the Transportation Electrification practice at Nathan Associates, recently published an article examining how climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter movement are interrelated. The article finds that e-mobility will play an even larger and more central role in addressing climate change in the future.

At the same time, e-mobility can play an important supporting role in both the social/racial justice and health fronts. Improved incentives and programs can extend the benefits of personal EVs to the less well off, and electrification of trucks and buses can help address environmental inequalities.
