One Year In – How are States Progressing Towards Meeting the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Action Plan? The Policies, Partnerships and Financial Mechanisms

In May of 2014, the Multi-State Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Task Force, including eight states in the Northeast and West Coast, released the ZEV Action Plan to collectively put 3.3 million ZEVs on the road by 2025. The Plan identifies eleven key action items to: (1) build the ZEV, market including charging infrastructure; (2) provide consistent codes, standard and tracking; and (3) improve the driver’s experience. The Plan also identifies a series of partnership opportunities for states with various stakeholders. These stakeholders include the automobile manufacturers, car dealers, the electric vehicle supply equipment industry, electricity providers, and others. One year later, how are states progressing towards implementing this plan? What are the right combinations of policies and partnerships to create a robust ZEV market while fostering investment in and development of the necessary infrastructure?
