Are you familiar with the existing models for estimating the quantities of greenhouse gas, criteria pollutants, and toxins from gasoline or diesel-powered mobile sources? TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, October 21, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern that will provide a detailed framework for modeling the impact of electrifying the transportation fleet on air quality. Presenters will discuss estimating the load requirements from electric vehicles (EV) and the generation of electricity at the grid and distribution at charging stations with updated techniques.

Some registrants will need to pay $95 to attend this webinar. Sign into to view registration information.

Webinar agenda and presenters

  1. Load requirements from EVs considering different factors: Marcus Alexander, Electric Power Research Institute
  2. Generating electricity from renewable or non-renewable sources and distribution to grids: Thomas Bradley, Colorado State University
  3. Impacts of electrification on air quality under various conditions: John Grant, Ramboll
  4. Question and answer session: Eladio Knipping, Electric Power Research Institute


The first 60 minutes of the webinar will be for presentations and the final 30 minutes will be reserved for audience questions.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  1. Determine modeling load requirements and energy consumption of EVs with varying driving behavior
  2. Identify renewable and non-renewable generation of electricity and supplying to grids
