Despite strong and growing policy and consumer momentum toward their adoption, barriers remain and are impeding the growth of the zero-emission commercial vehicle (ZECV) segment. A new CALSTART White Paper, “Taking Commercial Fleet Electrification to Scale” offers structured guidance on how to catalyze ZECV markets and unlock the needed capital to finance fleet electrification.
As we approach the all-important COP26, the report calls for businesses to lead from the front and for every company with a fleet or employee car scheme to join EV100 and commit to going electric.
Scaling up BEV manufacturing will mean increasing the production and processing of several materials used in today’s lithium-ion batteries. Fortunately, strategies for recycling lithium-ion batteries offer the possibility of a sustainable, long-term supply of such materials, supporting the continued deployment of electric vehicles (EVs).
This working paper gathers insights from selected European cities on how to streamline the charging infrastructure planning and implementation process.
This paper is the third update to an initial report released in May 2019 that summarizes the current status, and projected growth, of the U.S. electric vehicle (EV) industry over the next five to ten years.
With this edition of the Market Monitor, the International Council on Clean Transportation has updated their methodology to reflect the 2019 performance of manufacturers with respect to average vehicle mass and the application of eco-innovations, and improved correlation factors between NEDC and WLTP CO2 emission levels for some vehicles.
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.
Transportation sector is the largest contributor of global greenhouse gas emissions in the USA. Disruptive technological changes in this sector, such as alternative fuel vehicles, are crucial for emission reduction. This report analyzes how a cost-minimizing strategic transition plan can be developed for a transportation ﬁrm that aims to adopt electric trucks in their fully diesel ﬂeet, over time.
This briefing assesses metropolitan area-level data on electric vehicle registrations and identifies the 25 largest electric vehicle markets, which together represent 42% of new passenger electric vehicle sales globally through 2018.
This report explores the evolution of shared mobility and electric transportation networks in China, India, and the United States. It evaluates the role of policy, economics, infrastructure, and behavioral norms in influencing mobility trends in these countries. The report argues that supportive policies are needed to accelerate this transition and help overcome behavioral norms that bias toward gas vehicles and the advantages of already-built fueling infrastructure.
