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.
At the Transportation Research Board (TRB) annual meeting in January, Brett Williams, CSE’s senior principal transportation advisor, spoke about electric vehicle (EV) incentive programs, their impacts, and the consumers they are influencing.
The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP), administered by CSE on behalf of the California Air Resources Board, provides consumer rebates for the purchase or lease of new electric cars and motorcycles.
Los residentes de bajos ingresos que viven en vecindarios de California rodeados de autopistas y carreteras se ven impactados de manera desproporcionada por la contaminación del aire arrojada por los millones de camiones de carga diésel y automóviles a gasolina en circulación.
Last month, CSE Senior Principal Transportation Advisor Brett Williams presented at the 31st International Electric Vehicle Symposium and Exhibition (EVS 31) in Kobe, Japan. The World Electric Vehicle Association and the Electric Drive Transportation Association co-host the annual conference for world leaders in the electric vehicle (EV) industry.
CSE is among a group of 13 national and regional organizations teaming up with the Alliance to Save Energy’s 50x50 Commission on U.S. Transportation Sector Efficiency to help reduce energy use in transportation 50 percent by 2050.
