The Center for Advancing Research in Transportation Emissions, Energy and Health (CARTEEH) hosted a webinar on June 8, 2022, 12-1 p.m. Central Time on Planning, Policy, and Economic Impacts of Expanding EV Infrastructure in the United States. CARTEEH researchers from the Texas A&M Transportation Institute discussed the planning, policy, and economic implications of expanding charging infrastructure for electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States. An increased emphasis—including a significant influx of funding — is being placed on the expansion of EV charging infrastructure both through the recent Investment and Infrastructure Jobs Act (IIJA) as well as from the transportation industry. This increased momentum makes it imperative that local and state governments have access to guidance related to the economic and health impacts associated with the expansion of EV charging infrastructure; as well as how to effectively plan for equitable access and outcomes. Presenters discussed how recent research conducted by CARTEEH can inform decision makers of potential economic benefits and provide an overview of how stakeholder engagement and collaboration are critical to the effective expansion of EV infrastructure in the United States.

Jacqueline Kuzio, PhD
Assistant Research Scientist, Texas A&M Transportation Institute
Dr. Kuzio is an Assistant Research Scientist in the Infrastructure Investment Analysis (IIA) Program at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI). In her role with IIA, she conducts research on transportation funding, finance, and economics for a variety of modes including highways, transit, aviation, and rail. Dr. Kuzio has worked on a range of projects involving policy analysis, economic impact assessments, as well as legal reviews relating to transportation. In 2021, she completed her Ph.D. that focused on transportation technology investment – how those investments can be equitable and just as well as how these investments can be better integrated into current system planning while promoting equity. Before joining TTI, Dr. Kuzio completed her Master’s in Public Administration at The George Bush School of Government and Public Service. Her studies at The Bush School concentrated on state and local government and transportation policy.
