Action Plan to put 1.5 million Zero Emission Vehicles on California roads
The state Office of Planning and Research has released an Action Plan to implement Governor Jerry Brown’s March 2012 Executive Order to put 1.5 million zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) on California’s roads by 2025.
The Action Plan supports the Air Resources Board’s Advanced Clean Car regulations which will greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the state. It also explains actions being taken by other agencies to reduce those emissions. Transportation is California’s largest source of greenhouse gas emissions.
The Advanced Clean Car regulations are part of the suite of greenhouse gas emission reduction programs developed under the California Global Warming Solutions Act (AB 32) and approved by the Air Resources Board to reduce those emissions to 1990 levels. Other AB 32 programs include the Low Carbon Fuel Standard, Renewables Portfolio Standard and cap-and-trade.
