The transition to electric vehicles continues as governments increasingly develop and adopt policies to accelerate electric vehicle growth.
Regional haul, heavy-duty trucking operations are good candidates for electrification due to the segment’s relatively short-hauls and return-to-base operations. The Guidance Report proposes a three-part framework that the industry can use to prioritize regions for electric truck deployment.
Electric power sector investments of $75–125 billion needed to support projected 20 million EVs by 2030, according to Brattle economists.
Scaling Up Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure: Lessons from China and the United States for the Indian Context
To expand India’s charging infrastructure, this report provides best practices from two of the largest EV markets – China and the United States – for the Indian context. This report aims to provide Indian policymakers and stakeholders with a review of the key challenges facing EV charging infrastructure markets in China and the United States.
This brief from the ICCT finds that continued policy support, as well as innovations in vehicle technology and progress in infrastructure build-out, will be needed to accelerate growth rates and ensure that the goals for full vehicle electrification are achieved.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has proposed new zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) requirements through its Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) proceeding. This report evaluates the proposed rule using the California Energy Policy Simulator (EPS).
This analysis examines costs and revenues associated with EVs between 2012 and 2019 in the two utility service territories in the US with the most EVs of any--Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and Southern California Edison (SCE).
This paper examines ways that public and private stakeholders can work together to better understand and tackle the oft-overlooked costs and benefits of public fast charging infrastructure that is accessible to all. While electricity remains the largest cost driver, the full stack of costs also includes equipment at the early stage of a technology adoption curve, construction and installation costs, ongoing networking and maintenance costs, among other factors.
To help fleet operators unlock the full benefits of fleet electrification, the California Trucking Association (CTA) and Ceres collaborated with the global research firm Navigant Research, a Guidehouse Company, to conduct a survey of companies with early fleet electrification projects.
In May 2020, Advanced Energy Economy released a new report concluding that more than 350 Pennsylvania firms, many of them in industries and geographies that have seen declines in recent years, could easily transition to serving the supply chain for electric vehicles, which is expected to grow at a rapid rate in the coming years.
