The New York State Electric School Bus Roadmap presents an overview of the key challenges, costs, funding mechanisms, and policy options involved in the effort to transition all school buses in New York State to zero-emission operation by 2035
Policymakers, manufacturers, and end users have experimented with a number of policy tools to promote first clean and now primarily zero-emission vehicle adoption. An expanding number of states and regions have adopted a now well-proven policy tool to efficiently deploy zero-emission commercial vehicles—and now infrastructure—faster using an innovative and flexible point-of-sale incentive: the voucher incentive program (VIP).
Near-Term Infrastructure Deployment to Support Zero-Emission Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles in the United StatesDipo Fadeyi2023-07-05T16:52:12-04:00
The electrification of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (MHDVs) is gaining momentum in the United States, and the major manufacturers in the country have made ambitious commitments for the mass production of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) as early as 2030. State-level regulations such as California’s Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) rule, federal incentives in the Inflation Reduction Act, and the U.S. commitment to join the Global Commercial Drive to Zero (aimed at 100% ZEV sales by 2040) are increasing ZEV adoption in the MHDV sector. Electrifying transportation nationwide will require the deployment of charging (for battery electric vehicles) and refueling (for hydrogen vehicles) infrastructure, as well as the supporting electrical grid infrastructure. MHDV fleet operators, electric utilities, and policymakers alike are uncertain as to where, how much, and by what year charging and refueling infrastructure needs to be built, and what upgrades to grid infrastructure are required to enable this deployment.
Zero-Emission Trucks: The Facts provides a concise overview of the state of zero-emission freight vehicles in the U.S., including industry demand, supply, and benefits.
Electric car markets are seeing exponential growth as sales exceeded 10 million in 2022. A total of 14% of all new cars sold were electric in 2022, up from around 9% in 2021 and less than 5% in 2020. Three markets dominated global sales. China was the frontrunner once again, accounting for around 60% of global electric car sales. More than half of the electric cars on roads worldwide are now in China and the country has already exceeded its 2025 target for new energy vehicle sales. In Europe, the second largest market, electric car sales increased by over 15% in 2022, meaning that more than one in every five cars sold was electric. Electric car sales in the United States – the third largest market –increased 55% in 2022, reaching a sales share of 8%.
This report describes each of the many technologies that exist in the messy middle and for the zero-emissions future. It is intended to provide a framework for fleets, manufacturers and others to navigate this exciting, albeit messy middle.
This report provides an updated inventory of adopted zero-emission buses (ZEBs)—defined as Class 3 and above battery-electric or fuel cell electric transit buses—that have been funded, ordered, and/or delivered within the United States and Canada, according to data collected through September 2022.
This study conducted by the International Council of Clean Transportation assesses the future impact of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) on electrification rates for light-duty and heavy-duty vehicle sales in the United States through 2035.
The Oregon Legislature tasked the Department of Environmental Quality and Department of Transportation to explore incentive programs that are needed to transition Oregon’s the medium- and heavy-duty fleet from gasoline or diesel to electricity or hydrogen. This report presents information gathered from existing incentive programs, best practices developed by Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management and input from numerous contributors including impacted industries and state and local governments.
Accelerating Transportation Emission Reductions and Electric Vehicle Adoption: An Analysis of Retailer CommitmentsMoe Khatib2022-12-08T13:58:35-05:00
This Report summarizes major findings from data on the 149 retailers included in DGA’s Corporate Transportation Decarbonization Tracker, analyzes challenges to and opportunities for increased EV adoption, and highlights specific retailers’ bold commitments and innovative practices with regard to vehicle electrification, including initiatives related to EV chargers and medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicles (MHD EVs).
