ACEEE's Transportation Program seeks to foster innovative technologies, policies, and programs to reduce transportation-related energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. We advocate a balanced and equitable set of measures to improve vehicle fuel efficiency and enhance overall transportation system efficiency including stronger Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards, federal and state incentives for green vehicles, and policies to encourage multimodal passenger travel.
Electric vehicles (EVs) provide a good example of our work. To make EVs accessible to everyone, including low-income households and marginalized communities, the program launched a working group in 2019. The group helps equity-minded utilities better understand how to engage stakeholders, site EV charging stations, increase EV adoption, and measure success of such efforts.
