A fleet of 25 brightly colored cars is hitting the streets in Sacramento as part of a campaign to raise awareness of driving electric vehicles (EVs). Currently, more than 10,000 EVs are on the roads in Sacramento County, however, many drivers are unaware of them and the rebates and incentives available for switching to electric driving.
CSE has been selected by New York State to assist in its clean transportation programs by administering incentives for a reinstated truck and bus purchase program aimed at removing older, polluting diesel vehicles from the state’s roadways and replacing them with cleaner vehicles. CSE will be the first line of contact for fleet owners and transit agencies interested in the program.
Nine Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern states and the District of Columbia have joined forces to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the transportation sector and help achieve their climate mitigation goals through a cap-and-invest system.
The electric vehicle industry is growing and changing quickly, and CSE’s real-time program data and field outreach experiences discover these changes firsthand and respond with valuable market insights.
A suite of electric vehicle (EV) chargers is now available to the public at Beneficial State Bank in Fresno, Calif., installed with the support of a partnership working to increase EV charging availability in Fresno County. The partnership’s goals are to support access to clean transportation, improve local air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
New efforts to spur low-carbon energy innovation
CSE and State University of New York at Stony Brook have established a collaboration to develop joint research and programs to help transition the nation to low-carbon energy technologies and close gaps that hinder alternative and renewable energy adoption.
While California leads the U.S. clean energy transformation toward decarbonization, seven Northeastern states—New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Maine—when combined, rival the Golden State in renewable energy deployment, energy efficiency (EE) and electric vehicle (EV) adoption.
Ryan Bodanyi, CSE’s senior specialist for clean transportation, addressed this question in a February 26 presentation at the 22nd Annual Energy, Utility & Environment Conference (EUEC). The EUEC is one of the largest events of its kind, featuring thousands of delegates, 400 expert speakers and top officials from utilities and environmental regulators nationwide.
A rebate project to increase access to electric vehicle (EV) chargers throughout Sacramento County launched April 4, 2019, with up to $15.5 million in funds available for qualifying local businesses and nonprofit organizations.
