States will soon start implementing programs to use VW settlement funds to reduce NOx emissions. One of the most powerful ways to cut these harmful emissions is to advance the deployment of zero emission vehicles.
We held a webinar on January 24, 2018 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET to share good practices on state funding programs that advance zero emission trucks and buses. Links to each speaker’s PowerPoint presentations is provided inline below.
Nick Nigro from Atlas Public Policy kicked things off with a very brief status of state activities using information we’ve been collecting for the Atlas EV Hub. Our expert speakers then share their perspectives on good practices to deploy zero emission trucks and buses through state funding programs.
We focused on two questions:
- What are effective ways to structure zero emission truck and bus programs?
- How should infrastructure be handled?
Our speakers were brief and allowed for a robust discussion. We posted a Q&A document on the Atlas EV Hub SharePoint that summarizes all the questions we were able to answer during the meeting. The document also has questions we weren’t able to answer and we encourage EV Hub users to fill in the gaps!
