Emissions Impact of Connected and Automated Vehicle Deployment in California

This research seminar will cover Giovanni Circella's study that examined the existing literature on the expected impacts of CAV deployment on travel demand, gathered feedback through a workshop with leading experts in the field, and explored several California scenarios of light-duty CAV vehicle technology adoption, usage preferences, and policies in 2050 to estimate the associated VMT and resulting criteria pollutant and GHG emissions.

Recent Urban Freight Research Findings From Europe

Urban freight research is now an established field within European academic centers, taking advantage of increasing data availability, new corporate and government sponsors, and increased interest from practitioners and local decision-makers. Professor Dablanc will present some of the recent issues and research findings from her team, including some recent European Union funded projects she participated in.

Air Resources Board Seminar: The Dynamics of Plug-In Electric Vehicles in the Secondary Market and Their Implications for Vehicle Demand, Durability, and Emissions

The seminar describes the development of the used plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market in California and identifies the factors that influence its future growth, which are key to achieving our State’s equity, greenhouse gas, and air quality goals.

Potential to Build Current Natural Gas Infrastructure to accommodate the Future Conversion of Near-Zero Transportation Technology

This project aimed to complement The California Air Resource Board’s on-going work on technology assessment by exploring how the near-term development of natural gas infrastructure, in the heavy-duty transportation sector, can be implemented to include technology that can best facilitate the long-term conversion to near-zero technology.
