Transportation contributes about 14% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and international cooperation on policy, technology, and business is an effective strategy to support emission reduction efforts. To support international collaboration on transportation decarbonization, NRDC spoke about our China EV-grid integration project experience and why cross-sectoral collaboration is critical for further EV uptake and low-carbon transition at the “Road to Zero – Low Carbon Transport Transition” workshop hosted by the British Consulate General in Shanghai.
