EV Webinar Series: Can fleet electrification benefit air quality and human health? Image

EV WEBINAR SERIES: CAN FLEET ELECTRIFICATION BENEFIT AIR QUALITY AND HUMAN HEALTH?

The transportation sector drives economic development and enhances the quality of life for humans but is also a significant source of air pollution. Vehicular traffic emits fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and contributes to the formation of surface ozone. Both ozone and PM2.5 are known to be harmful to human health, causing premature deaths and both severe and minor morbidities (e.g., hospital admissions and asthma exacerbations). The population of the Houston Area is expected to grow by 50% by 2040 with respect to 2013, thus potentially leading to a significant increase in passenger travels and freight activity to meet the needs of the growing population. On-road vehicle traffic, which includes trucks and passenger vehicles, is predicted to increase 30%-80% by 2040.
