March 31, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. ET: Webinar – Intra-State Collaboration for Energy-Efficient Transportation Planning
States are looking to the transportation sector more than ever as a means of achieving energy, financial, environmental, reliability, and climate goals. Furthermore, with new technologies and fuels powering the transportation sector, State Energy Offices are more involved with transportation planning than ever. This webinar will look at how state agencies can coordinate between themselves and their agencies’ priorities to collaborate and effectively plan for an energy-efficient transportation sector.

June 11, 2020: Webinar – Supporting Rural Transportation Options
Rural communities spend more time, money, and energy on transportation than urban commuters, often with fewer options due to a lack of infrastructure. This webinar, co-hosted by the NASEO Transportation Committee and NASEO Rural Energy Task Force, will explore options for states as they develop policies and programs to support rural transportation and mobility, and discuss opportunities and challenges for rural electric service providers to invest in electric charging infrastructure.

July 21, 2020: Webinar – Look Back at Electric Vehicle Roadmaps: Lessons Learned
In recent years, several states have engaged planning processes and road-mapping exercises, to guide electric vehicle sector development and infrastructure deployment. This webinar will take a look back at those processes, examining key benefits of this process, lessons learned, and suggestions for state policymakers as they engage in their own planning.

September 8, 2020: Webinar – State Financing for Alternative Fuels: Moving Beyond the VW Settlement
The Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust has provided states with unprecedented levels of funding to support alternative fuel vehicle deployment and infrastructure development. This has helped states achieve key goals for air quality, fuel and cost savings, and climate change mitigation by reducing the reliance on petroleum. Moving forward, many states are interested in supporting alternative fuels beyond funding provided from the VW Settlement. This webinar will look at funding sources being leveraged by states to continue funding alternative fuels. 

November 17, 2020: New Data Tools for Transportation Planning and Efficiency
With new technologies flooding the transportation market, and tools being developed to leverage large datasets in planning and analysis, there are new opportunities for private sector investment and data-driven policy and planning from State Energy Offices. This webinar will look at recent planning tools and technologies that States can leverage to reduce energy use, spending, and air emissions from the transportation sector.
