State Clean Transportation Initiatives: Stepping Towards Success for High EV Adoption

November 10, 2020 2:00 pm — 3:30 pm
Webinar Only

An ELI & Babst, Calland, Clements and Zomnir, P.C. Co-Sponsored Webinar

The United States is experiencing a wave of state-led clean transportation initiatives that are gaining substantial momentum. Faced with insufficient action on the federal level to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, states are focusing their efforts on the sector that produces the largest percentage of GHG: transportation.

Around the country, states are taking various avenues to curb emissions from the transportation sector. California has adopted low emission limits for light-duty vehicles and targeted transportation segments with new regulations, including the Advanced Clean Trucks Regulation. Other states are setting requirements for transportation network companies (TNCs) to curb emissions. Several states are forming new regional initiatives including the Transportation and Climate Initiative and the Multi-State Medium- and Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Memorandum of Understanding. Still others are developing charging infrastructure initiatives, expanding the grid to promote electric vehicles, investing in electric vehicle government fleets and rebates for private customers, and more.

Join ELI, Babst Calland, and leading panelists to explore these initiatives, their potential impact, and funding sources. Expert panelists focus on steps state and local governments can take to partner with industry to facilitate increased electric vehicle adoption. Lastly, panelists dive into big issue topics such as the development of robust charging and grid infrastructure, and allowing direct sales to consumers.
