New Jersey is bringing zero emission solutions to overburdened areas through eMobility programs
Governor Murphy's administration has a comprehensive approach to mitigate the effects of climate change. The Global Warming Response Act calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050. A multifaceted approach must be taken to reduce the emissions from the transportation sector. eMobility is one approach that provides clean transportation to citizens who may not own their own vehicles. eMobility is equitable shared transportation using electric vehicles. These projects benefit low- to moderate-income communities disproportionately impacted by air pollution through carshare and ride hailing programs, electric taxis, shuttle services, and more.
Proposals for eMobility are unique and may include:
- Electric vehicles
- Electric vehicle charging stations
- Property purchase or lease (headquarters for vehicles and charging equipment)
- Program development and operation
- Education and outreach
- Methods to ensure equity
- Technology (hardware, software, data collection, etc.)
- and more
Transportation emissions remain the largest source of greenhouse gas pollution in the State, contributing to climate change impacts like rising temperatures, rising sea levels, and more extreme weather events. They also serve as a significant contributor for other air pollutants, like NOx and particulate matter, which have harmful evironmental and health effects. Moving toward transportation electrification addresses these concerns because electric vehicles (EVs) do not produce any tailpipe emissions.
New Jersey's low-income communities and communities of color have historically been subject to an unreasonably high number of environmental and public health stressors, including transportation emissions. As a result, residents in these areas suffer from increased adverse health effects including, but not limited to, asthma, cancer, elevated blood lead levels, cardiovascular disease, and developmental disorders.
Electric mobility solutions like carshare, rideshare, and ride hailing services provide additional modes of transport for residents in underserved areas, who often don't own a personal vehicle and rely on public transportation. eMobility will help ensure they have access to and can benefit from the advantages of clean vehicle technology.
