LBNL researchers developed an integrated assessment approach to study the health and climate impacts of long-haul truck electrification across the United States.
This paper describes the economic, health, and social justice challenges from both COVID-19 and the 2020 wildfire season and highlights the role of transportation electrification in being one of many critical responses to the challenges.
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.
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).
Ride-hailing trips today result in an estimated 69 percent more climate pollution on average than the trips they displace. Fortunately, the industry can implement several strategies to address the negative impacts of ride-hailing and contribute to a low-carbon transportation future.
Based on where EVs have been sold, driving the average EV produces global warming pollution equal to a gasoline vehicle that gets 88 miles per gallon (mpg) fuel economy.
Producing the electricity to power electric vehicles can generate emissions. But those emissions levels are far lower than the pollution emitted by conventional vehicles, and could be even lower as the electric power sector cleans up over next few decades, according to a new report issued today.
The present study aims to access the impacts of incorporating electrification of other economic sectors (and hydrogen production) into a carbon constrained electricity system across the state of Colorado.
This report is the first four-year update to the 2015 pLAn. It augments, expands, and elaborates in even more detail L.A.’s vision for a sustainable future, including climate change policy. This report is also referred to as L.A.'s Green New Deal.
