The City of Seattle has been at the forefront of efforts to decrease environmental pollution, become "greener" and reduce its carbon footprint. One such effort began in 2009 with the city's move to promote greater use of electric vehicles to increase vehicle efficiency and reduce greenhouse gasses by becoming more "plug-in ready." These city-wide efforts have taken parking to a new level as data and technology work to increase transportation choices for residents and help the city become more sustainable.
This On Demand Webinar Addresses:
- Infrastructure needed to become "plug-in ready"
- Seattle's city-wide effort to improve transportation choice
- Marketing and education efforts to promote EV charging and sustainability
- How these efforts have affected parking habits and revenue
