2019 Conference on Transportation, Economics, Energy and the Environment (TE3)

The sixth annual University of Michigan Conference on Transportation, Economics, Energy and the Environment (TE3) brought together experts in these fields to discuss the growing global adoption of electric vehicles (EVs). Over 200 people attended the one-day event, hosted by the University of Michigan Energy Institute (UMEI) in U-M’s Rackham Amphitheatre on Friday, October 18, 2019. TE3 draws individuals from the automotive, energy and related businesses, government agencies, national laboratories and nonprofit organizations as well as academic researchers and students.

The conference was segmented into four sessions covering consumer intentions and charging considerations, the economics of electric vehicles, policy interactions and global policy challenges. The first three sessions were structured around peer-reviewed research. The presenters included authors who summarized insights from their papers along with session chairs and discussants who offered complementary insights as practitioners in the field. The final session was a high-level panel discussion that addressed the issues confronting policymakers who hope to accelerate the transition to electrified transportation worldwide.
