Clean Cars and Trucks

The transportation sector is responsible for 28% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the United States and has recently overtaken the electric power sector as the largest source of GHG emissions in the country. Because they generate no tailpipe emissions, electric vehicles (EVs) can play a critical role in achieving significant GHG emissions reductions, meeting aggressive climate goals and reducing localized air pollution. If charged with clean electricity, EVs can be almost entirely zero emission. Existing literature demonstrates that electrification can lead to reductions in light-duty GHG emissions of 36 to 50% by 2050. For heavy-duty vehicles, this projected reduction can range from 22 to 43% by 2050.
The above text comes from the report, “The State Transportation Electrification Scorecard” from The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). This report ranks states’ efforts—identifying those that have taken comprehensive steps to reduce barriers and others that are just starting. Every state can step up to enable equitable, electrified transportation for all.
This post is largely based on the results and recommendations of this report, and some related information.
