EMA & FUELS INSTITUTE
The Fuel Institute released a new study recently that provides an overview and analysis of U.S. and global environmental initiatives to reduce emissions from the transportation sector. As governments consider strategies to reduce emissions from transportation, the Fuels Institute report provides valuable context to help guide their considerations, encouraging them to consider multiple perspectives before deciding how to proceed. “Impact of Transportation-Related Environmental Initiatives” takes an in-depth look at the relative effectiveness and associated costs to society, government, industry and consumers of 14 distinct transportation movements, including those focused on emissions, fuel economy, and carbon pricing; alternative fuels; congestion pricing, tolls, and telecommuting; and mobility.
The “Impact of Transportation-Related Environmental Initiatives” report evaluates and compares the impact that different environmentally focused transportation-energy regulations, policies, and initiatives will have on emissions and costs to consumers over the next 20 years.
The report discusses existing initiatives such as the zero-emission vehicle mandate, the Low Carbon Fuel Standard, the Renewable Fuel Standard, and federal and state electric vehicle subsidies as well as potential future initiatives such as the Cleaner Trucks Initiative and Transportation Climate Initiative.
