Message from the Chair - November 2021
Welcome to the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community!
Our mission is to coordinate all things transportation, electric and smart, within IEEE. Honestly, our task gets bigger every day with applications that would have been thought of as “futuristic” if not downright crazy just a few years ago, from autonomous cars to fully electric airplanes and super high-speed trains.

The World’s Most Popular EVs Aren’t Cars, Trucks, or Motorcycles >The pandemic has helped transform the e-bike into a juggernaut
By Lawrence Ulrich
When the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Build Back Better Act last week, a lesser-recognized provision earmarked some $4.1 billion in tax credits to further stimulate an already booming EV market that Elon Musk hasn't even dabbled in.
Electric bicycles, better known as e-bikes, have moved from novelty to mainstream with breathtaking speed. They've been a boon to hard-working delivery persons during the pandemic (and their impatient customers), and commuters who don't care to be a sweaty mess when they arrive. And while the scoffing tends to center around the "purity" of cycling—the idea that e-bike riders are somehow lazy cheaters—that electric assist is actually luring people off the couch for healthy exercise. That's especially welcome for older or out-of-practice riders (which describes a whole lot of folks) who might otherwise avoid cycling entirely, put off by daunting hills or longer distances.

The impact of electric transportation on pollution and reduced carbon emissions and fossil-fuel consumption is complicated. On the one hand, well-designed electric vehicles (EVs) use much less energy per mile than conventionally-fueled vehicles. For passenger cars, good all-electric designs use roughly a quarter of the energy per mile of gasoline cars, tracing back to the source. On the other hand, the emissions impact tends to be much more local, and depends on how electricity is generated in a region.

The advancement of flying cars and eVTOL (electric vertical takeoff and landing) vehicles is reshaping the future of transportation. In addition to helping us reach our destinations more quickly and cut road traffic congestion, flying cars and eVTOL vehicles could help dramatically reduce the overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation globally.

Check out the latest podcast from TEC
This podcast is all about extraordinary stories of real women pursuing an academic career or currently working in electrical engineering stream, more specifically the power and energy industry. Listen to know more about the amazing work women across the globe have been doing in the different fields of power and energy, such as renewable energy systems, electric energy storage, and transportation electrification. Through the lens of Dr. Simay Akar, our guest for this podcast, learn about what motivates these determined women, what struggles they overcame, and how the gender gap in male-dominated fields, such as electrical engineering, can be closed.
