About the Conference

The University of Michigan’s Conference on Transportation, Economics, Energy and Environment (TE3) brings economic scholars together with government and industry practitioners to exchange ideas and strengthen collective knowledge for addressing the transportation sector’s energy and environmental policy challenges.

Conference themes track the changing economics of the transportation sector in light of evolving business models, energy markets and the public policy landscape. The 2019 event will examine the electrification of mobility worldwide, highlighting developments in the United States and China.

TE3 participants will explore this exciting transition in sessions addressing consumer interest in electric vehicles (EVs), charging infrastructure, the role of a cleaner electric grid, the economics of EVs and the interactions among different policies. The conference will close with a high-level panel discussion about the tensions that confront electrification-related policy development in the world’s leading vehicle markets.
