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.
This toolkit is designed to provide public officials and advocates with model EV policies that accelerate the switch to clean vehicles in an effective, sustainable, and equitable way.
Once mandatory EV requirements are set in local code, the charging infrastructure automatically spreads throughout the community as neighborhoods grow and evolve, bringing down the cost of charger installations and allowing public and private investments to stretch further over a greater number of new EV charging stations.
Electric power sector investments of $75–125 billion needed to support projected 20 million EVs by 2030, according to Brattle economists.
In this follow-up report we discuss ways to quickly and efficiently bring TE benefits to the communities that need them most. Using Chicago as an example, we examine the problem of air inequality and suggest policies and programs to make TE a key part of the solution.
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.
Getting to 20 Million EVs by 2030: Opportunities for the Electricity Industry in Preparing for an EV Future
A $2 million pilot project, funded through the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, allowed three school districts to purchase Type C electric school buses and Level 2 bidirectional vehicle-to-grid (V2G) charging stations to test the technology in cold weather environments in Massachusetts.
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).
