Master Planning for the Future of Electric Vehicles

Master Planning for the Future of Electric Vehicles

An effective decarbonisation strategy is often an exercise in enhancing master planning – one in which pathways to reduce emissions are identified and implemented while thinking creatively about how to meet community infrastructure needs around mobility and building use. As transportation remains one of the most significant contributors to greenhouse gases (GHGs) in the United States and globally, no decarbonisation strategy is complete without the consideration of mobility and electric vehicles (EVs). ​

The emergence of federal funding opportunities that prioritise decarbonisation and EV adoption, such as The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) has created an unprecedented opportunity for cities to incorporate decarbonisation into their master plans. To do so effectively, cities should incorporate clear decarbonisation goals into their master plans, prioritise early coordination with partners, integrate data-driven approaches, ensure approaches account for equity, and leverage available funding mechanisms.

This course delves into the strategic integration of sustainable practices, coordination among diverse stakeholders, data-driven decision-making, equity considerations, and leveraging financial opportunities to achieve successful decarbonisation in transportation.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  1. Understand the role of master planning in shaping community growth
  2. Identify ways to streamline zoning and permitting processes to accelerate the implementation of decarbonisation initiatives
  3. Understand how to streamline processes like zoning and permitting for efficient implementation
