Presentation: “Exploratory Estimation of Greenhouse-Gas Emission Reductions from California’s Clean Vehicle Rebate Project”

Presentation given at the Transportation Resources Board’s 98th Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. (January 16, 2019) that described a preliminary but more detailed picture the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project’s greenhouse-gas impacts. The analysis utilized project-specific data to through August 2018 (N=257,401 participants). Reductions attributable to rebated plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) over the first year of vehicle ownership were estimated to be approximately 713 thousand metric tons of CO2-equivalent, or an average of 2.58 tons per PHEV and 2.90 tons per BEV. Findings indicate that use of project-derived data can significantly enhance characterizations of the impact of incentive programs.

Summary of Disadvantaged Community Responses to the Electric Vehicle Consumer Survey, 2013–2015 Edition

This report summarizes responses provided by residents of Disadvantaged Communities to the CVRP Consumer Survey, 2013– 2015 edition. It examines statistically significant differences between those residing inside (n=1,083) and those residing outside (n=18,377) of Disadvantaged Community census tracts, and further segments each group by vehicle technology type (battery and plug-in-hybrid electric vehicle). It builds upon Summary Documentation of the Electric Vehicle Consumer Survey, 2013–2015 Edition.
