The Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI) and the Commonwealth Club of California present the 12th Annual Mineta National Transportation Policy Summit “Electrifying the Transportation Future,” Friday June 11, 2021.

This summit opens with a highly anticipated Fireside Chat with the Honorable U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg in conversation with MTI’s E.D. Dr. Karen Philbrick followed by preliminary remarks from Senator Alex Padilla and a keynote address delivered by Toks Omishakin, Director of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

The electrifying panel includes Dr. Asha W. Agrawal, Director of the MTI National Transportation Finance Center; Carlos Braceras, Executive Director of Utah’s Department of Transportation; Carl Guardino, Executive Vice President of Government Affairs at Bloom Energy; and Dr. Dan Sperling, Professor of Engineering at UC Davis. Moderating the event will be Therese McMillan, Executive Director of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission,

MTI and the Commonwealth Club of California are proud to deliver “Electrifying the Transportation Future.” Join us for an expert discussion on how transportation policymakers are facing two overlapping, once-in-a-generation opportunities: electrifying the nation’s vehicle fleet and re-establishing a stable source of federal and state revenue, particularly in light of the Biden administration’s push towards cleaner, greener transportation.

This FREE virtual summit is from 10a.m.-12:00 p.m. PT. Guests can register at
