The ZEV regulation is a significant portion of the ARB's mission to improve air quality and protect public health. Furthermore, the regulation is an important part of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's clean air goal of slashing air pollution by 50 percent. The event will be divided into informative sessions covering hydrogen technology, car company updates, battery technology, energy storage batteries, and demonstrations and impacts.

Photo Opportunity:


There will be photo opportunities available with approximately 20 ZEVs from around the world on display throughout the event. The ARB invites the public and the media to attend in person or via webcast. 


The Air Resources Board is a department of the California Environmental Protection Agency. ARB's mission is to promote and protect public health, welfare, and ecological resources through effective reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and considering effects on the economy. The ARB oversees all air pollution control efforts in California to attain and maintain health based air quality standards.

The energy challenge facing California is real. Every Californian needs to take immediate action to reduce energy consumption. For a list of simple ways you can reduce demand and cut your energy cost, see our website at http://www.arb.ca.gov.
