A word from Janelle:

Speeding Beyond Gasoline: Where We Are, Where We’re Going & How Azure and Big Data Are Making a Difference

 2022 has been a huge year for electric vehicles (EVs). The race to cut vehicle emissions and move beyond gasoline is on!  EVs are gaining rapidly in popularity, and new gasoline vehicle phaseout policies and EV tax credits are creating new opportunities to displace gasoline. Despite these gains, we aren’t reducing vehicle emissions fast enough to protect the climate. 

To move faster, we need better data and analytics to identify public and private investment opportunities, measure markets, and optimize the effort to redirect $600 billion in consumer gasoline spending to the EV transition.  Coltura is building an Azure cloud application and employing data sources never before used for this purpose to create an unprecedented look at the who, what, where, why, how, and how much of gasoline consumption in America.

Please join Coltura for a fascinating look at EVs’ progress in displacing gasoline, and how Azure is being used to guide next generation climate policy and investment.
