The electrification of the transportation sector is crucial to tackling global climate change. Globally, electric vehicle penetration has grown rapidly over the last decade, thanks to a variety of new car models coming to the market, significant cost reductions in components such as batteries and a range of public policies to promote electric mobility. In Latin America, electric transport is in early stages. The region faces many barriers to expanding electric transport – like the high cost of electric vehicles and a lack of charging infrastructure – with few of the incentives in place that have encouraged electric vehicle sales in other regions.
The Third Annual Latin America Clean Transport Forum in San José, Costa Rica will bring together representatives from government, private sector, and civil society to discuss impediments and opportunities to expanding clean transportation and electric vehicles in the region. Read more about our First Annual Latin America Clean Transport Forum in Mexico and Second Annual Latin America Clean Transport Forum in Bogotá and our report, Green Transportation: Electric Vehicles in Latin America.During this event, John Gartner, research director at Navigant, will participate in: Global Electrical Mobility Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.
