Electric Fuel Scale-Up in California: Policy and Regulatory Support

Project Area(s): 
Advanced Vehicles and Fuels

With funding from the California Energy Commission's Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) program, TSRC is investigating the barriers and opportunities related to scaling up the use of electricity as a transportation fuel (e-fuel) in California. This project includes assessment of the emissions and human-health benefits of transitioning to e-fuel and the current regulatory and policy context as it relates to the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). Activities include conducting power-grid and vehicle-population-growth analyses and holding a stakeholder workshop. The resulting report will provide input to and guidance for the further development of California state policies and regulations and other strategic activities that help foster the widespread and responsible commercialization of PEVs.
