Improving Our Understanding of Transport Electrification Benefits for Disadvantaged Communities

  • Principal Investigator Debbie Niemeier, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
This research will improve long-term sustainability by identifying how and why (or why not) transportation electrification (TE) projects align with regional and local transportation goals. The research will result in a deep dive case study that can serve as a template for evaluating future TE expenditures with respect to identifying and quantifying disadvantaged community benefits.
