Berkeley Electric Mobility Roadmap
With transportation responsible for 60% of Berkeley’s greenhouse gas emissions, carbon neutrality cannot be achieved without electric mobility. Cleaner electricity, now available through East Bay Community Energy, and State and local commitments to 100% renewable electricity by 2045, give electrification tremendous promise. The Berkeley Electric Mobility Roadmap is an essential building block of Berkeley’s overall climate strategy.
The goals outlined in the roadmap include:
- Ensure Equity in Access to Electric Mobility
- Improve Alternatives to Driving
- Achieve Zero Net Carbon Emissions
- Demonstrate City Leadership
This Roadmap centers equity by acknowledging and addressing the inequalities of our current transportation system. Early engagement of community-based organizations and nonprofits helped to identify important mobility gaps for low-income constituents, renters, communities of color, people with disabilities, and other priority stakeholders. Equity was used as a lens through which all proposed strategies were filtered.
