Hello, I’m Keshav! I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and am currently a senior at Monta Vista High School. Historically, my favorite subjects are math and literature. In my free time, I love to read and listen to music. I’ve also been learning chess! I’m thrilled to be sharing with you my Polygence project on EV Adoption, which is extremely important in combatting the threat of climate change. If you’d like to hear more, please register with the above link to attend my conference talk on September 18!

Policies to Catalyze EV Adoption in California

Abstract or project description

Electric vehicle (EV) adoption is important for meeting California’s climate goals. California governor Gavin Newsom wants to phase out gasoline cars by 2035. However, only a small fraction of the population drive EVs today. In this project, I have written a literature review that uses previous research and data to succinctly identify key barriers to individual EV adoption and policies the government can adopt to overcome these barriers in California.
