Finding the Funds: Options for State Plug-In Electric Vehicle Programs
April 17, 2015

This paper identifies options for states to fund plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) programs and highlights ways that states across the U.S. are supporting PEVs.

 

Supporting the Plug-In Electric Vehicle Market: Best Practices from State PEV Programs
January 15, 2015

This paper captures best practices in state-sponsored plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) buyer incentive programs, DC fast charging programs, and PEV awareness initiatives, as presented at the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s 2014 Plug-In Electric Vehicle Workshop.

 

Comments on United States v. Hyundai Proposed Consent Decree
December 11, 2014

The Georgetown Climate Center, in its role as facilitator of the Transportation and Climate Initiative, has recommended that the U.S. Justice Department revise its proposed consent decree in United States et al. v. Hyundai Motor Company et al. to require the defendants to direct funds to state projects and programs that have demonstrated success in reducing transportation-sector emissions.

Charging Ahead – Options for Policymakers Regarding the Regulation of Electric Vehicle Charging Markets
June 17, 2014

This paper provides an overview of the market for electric vehicle charging services, identifies actors and actions that might warrant regulation, and poses questions for policymakers to consider in determining the role that governments should play.

 

Lessons from Early Deployments of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
June 5, 2014

The goals of this study are to document real cases of electric vehicle charging infrastructure installations in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions and uncover some of the related challenges and opportunities.  Unlike earlier electric vehicle documents produced by the Transportation and Climate Initiative, the focus of this study is not on how installations should be done but rather on how they have been done.

Sustainable Communities Indicators Research Paper Series: Travel Mode Share
June 5, 2014

In support of the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s Sustainable Communities’ work, the Georgetown Climate Center and Rutgers University's Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy released research papers examining 11 potential indicators that could help measure progress in promoting sustainable communities and demonstrate the benefits of such policies. As one of the papers in that series, this paper examines the various approaches for measuring travel mode share.   

Sustainable Communities Indicators Research Paper Series: Health Benefits of Transportation Emissions Reductions
June 5, 2014

In support of the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s Sustainable Communities’ work, the Georgetown Climate Center and Rutgers University's Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy released research papers examining 11 potential indicators that could help measure progress in promoting sustainable communities and demonstrate the benefits of such policies. As one of the papers in that series, this paper explores the health impacts of transportation, the feasibility of measuring health outcomes directly and offers recommendations for using a health benefits indicator.

Sustainable Communities Indicators Research Paper Series: Greenhouse Gas Emissions Indicators and Approaches
June 5, 2014

In support of the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s Sustainable Communities’ work, the Georgetown Climate Center and Rutgers University's Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy released research papers examining 11 potential indicators that could help measure progress in promoting sustainable communities and demonstrate the benefits of such policies. As one of the papers in that series, this paper explores ways that states can measure greenhouse gas emissions from transportation and related indicators, such as vehicle miles traveled.

Sustainable Communities Indicators Research Paper Series: Promoting Accessibility
June 5, 2014

In support of the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s Sustainable Communities’ work, the Georgetown Climate Center and Rutgers University's Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy released research papers examining 11 potential indicators that could help measure progress in promoting sustainable communities and demonstrate the benefits of such policies. As one of the papers in that series, this paper examines two indicators—proportion of jobs/housing within X miles of transit and proximity to amenities—and explores approaches that can be used to promote accessibility.

Sustainable Communities Indicators Research Paper Series: Benefits of Investment
June 5, 2014

In support of the Transportation and Climate Initiative’s Sustainable Communities’ work, the Georgetown Climate Center and Rutgers University's Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy released research papers examining 11 potential indicators that could help measure progress in promoting sustainable communities and demonstrate the benefits of such policies. As one of the papers in that series, this paper provides an overview of the types of economic effects that can result from transportation expenditures, and approaches to quantifying the benefits of such investments.
