This paper from ACEEE analyzes the extent to which states and utilities are including equity in their siting of electric vehicle supply equipment and offers recommendations to states, utility commissions, and utilities to ensure that the benefits of transportation electrification reach underserved communities.
As federal policymakers develop infrastructure and climate legislation to create jobs and spur economic recovery, the Georgetown Climate Center and M.J. Bradley & Associates have released Towards Equitable and Transformative Investments in Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure, to inform federal investments in electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
This report reviews California’s clean mobility equity programs, noting successes, pitfalls and areas for improvement. It serves as both a guide for California as we continue evolving our clean mobility programs to more meaningfully center equity and as a guide for other states and the federal government as they move to develop and implement clean transportation equity programs.
When Might Lower-Income Drivers Benefit from Electric Vehicles? Quantifying the Economic Equity Implications of Electric Vehicle Adoption
This analysis finds that cost reductions in new electric vehicles (EVs) will lead to decreased used EV prices and cost parity with used gasoline vehicles for low-income households in the 2025-2030 time period.
EVHybridNoire and Clean Fuels Ohio developed a joint report detailing the attitudes, beliefs, and knowledge of next generation mobility in the Greater Cleveland area to identify unmet transportation needs in target communities.
This report focuses on the important role that multipollutant standards for passenger vehicles that ensure all vehicles sold in 2035 are zero-emitting would play in that landscape and the substantial benefits they would deliver.
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.
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.
This report explores policy options for medium- and heavy-duty electrification and argues that policy approaches should center on improving air quality in communities most burdened by vehicle pollution.
The Seattle Department of Transportation conducted a three-part human-centered design study in the summer of 2018 to guide the expansion of the public electric vehicle charging network in low-income communities and communities of color.
