Georgia Network for Electric Mobility
With the goal of enhancing research, education and outreach opportunities in a rapidly developing technological field, the University of Georgia has established a campus-wide Georgia Network for Electric Mobility.
A Georgia where electric mobility is accessible for all citizens, and a world where Georgia is a leader in electric mobility innovation.
Convene stakeholders in electric mobility across the state to improve the lives of all citizens through research, education and community partnership.
- To prepare the next generation of talent for the electric mobility industry.
- To advance research and development in electric mobility innovation.
- To establish community partnerships for adoption of electric mobility across Georgia.
- Advise on the governance and strategic planning for the GNEM.
- Participate in GNEM planning sessions and networking opportunities.
- Shape research and development that fulfills the vision and mission of GNEM.
- Utilize network, resources and expertise to build partnerships that support electric mobility across Georgia.
“The potential applications of this developing technology are endless and could greatly
impact communities across the state of Georgia in so many ways. Electric mobility technology will play an important role in the state and nation going
forward, and UGA’s involvement is a testament toward our ongoing goal to connect the
university’s expertise with communities and partners across the state.”
-Jennifer Frum, Vice President for UGA Public Service and Outreach
Initial partners in the Georgia Network for Electric Mobility include faculty, staff and students from the College of Engineering, the School of Public and International Affairs, the Carl Vinson Institute of Government and the Terry College of Business.
- The College of Engineering will assess the opportunities and challenges associated with advanced electric energy technology, smart infrastructure and interconnected communications on the integrated transportation network.
- The School of Public and International Affairs will explore energy security, regulatory and public financing facets of electric mobility.
- The Terry College of Business will examine the economic, human and natural capital impact of scaling electric mobility and its effects on sustainable development goals.
- The Vinson Institute will use its extensive statewide network to understand how electric vehicle technology will impact communities in Georgia and enhance the economic competitiveness of the state.
These initiatives will seed other efforts on campus that leverage the comprehensive land-grant mission of UGA, while also seeking to partner with industry throughout the state.
