CALSTART & Ceres NYC Climate Week 2020: How will a third of USA’s commercial vehicle market drive toward 30 percent zero-emission sales by 2030?

Sep 23, 2020 9:00 am

NEW YORK – Clean transportation technology accelerator CALSTART and business sustainability organization Ceres will explore the path to getting roughly one-third of the nation’s commercial vehicle market to 30 percent zero-emissions sales by 2030.

The ambitious 30 percent zero-emissions sales goal was recently adopted by 15-states and the District of Columbia in a landmark multi-state Memorandum of Understanding. The same agreement calls for the states of California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington as well as Washington, DC to work collaboratively to get to a 100 percent zero-emission sales share for all new commercial truck and buses by 2050.

The CALSTART/Ceres Climate Week NYC virtual workshop will examine the policies, programs, incentives and other actions states and cities can adopt to get to that goal quickly, strategically and equitably.
