Bringing Zero-Emission Vehicles to Vermont

 

GHG Emissions Chart In Vermont, 46 percent of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions come from the transportation sector. To address greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution from motor vehicles, Vermont is working with seven other states on a groundbreaking initiative to put 3.3 million zero emission vehicles on the roads in these states by 2025. This multi-state effort is intended to expand consumer awareness and demand for zero emission vehicles, which include battery-electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles, and hydrogen fuel-cell-electric vehicles. The use of these ultra clean vehicles will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality and public health, enhance energy diversity, save consumers money, and promote economic growth.EVs in front of state house

To initiate this effort, the governors of California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU). In this agreement, the governors identified specific actions they will promote within their states and joint cooperative actions these states will undertake to help build a robust national market for zero emission vehicles.

This page contains information about the MOU, as well as interstate and Vermont-specific plans to meet the goals of the initiative.
