The Colorado Renewable Energy Society will host an Event in Boulder on the 12th.
A coalition of EV advocates, including the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP), is launching the GoEVCity campaign and working with Colorado communities to transition their municipal, public transit, taxi/TNC, and public fleets to 100% electric vehicles. The presentation will outline a list of policies and programs that city, county, and state governments can use to electrify their transportation system. Our Speaker, Matt Frommer, will also lead a discussion on the status of Colorado’s adoption of the California Advanced Clean Car Standards in response to the Trump Administration’s rollback of vehicle fuel efficiency standards.
Matt Frommer is an associate in SWEEP’s transportation program, which focuses on strategies to expand the adoption of electric vehicles, improve the fuel efficiency of the vehicle fleet, and to reduce motor vehicle use. Matt received a Masters of the Environment in Sustainable Planning and Management from the University of Colorado in 2017. He focused his graduate studies on the electrification of rideshare fleets, and the expansion of electric-vehicle charging infrastructure in Colorado. Matt completed a capstone project with Rocky Mountain Institute’s Mobility Transportation team before joining SWEEP. Previously, he worked with Colorado’s rural communities to promote environmental education and stewardship, while also helping them diversify their local economies.
