Description

Description "The International Zero-Emission Vehicle Alliance (ZEV Alliance) is a collaboration of national and subnational governments working together to accelerate adoption of ZEVs. The participants set ambitious, achievable targets for ZEV deployment, take actions to achieve those targets as appropriate in each jurisdiction, act together to achieve individual and collective targets, and encourage and support other jurisdictions in setting and achieving ambitious ZEV targets."
Goals "ZEV Alliance members will:

- Establish a collective, headline target for ZEV leadership jurisdictions; - Encourage, set, and announce ambitious, realistic ZEV targets and plans in each jurisdiction, in line with its air quality, climate, and oil independence goals; - Work together on action plans to achieve ambitious ZEV targets; - Demonstrate the scale and momentum of ZEV adoption, and raise international awareness of expanding ZEV markets and opportunities."

Activities "The participants will continue to set ambitious, achievable targets for ZEV deployment, take actions to achieve those targets as appropriate in each jurisdiction, act together to achieve individual and collective targets, and encourage and support other jurisdictions in setting and achieving ambitious ZEV targets. The governments meet regularly to support their ongoing policy and technology developments in the respective jurisdictions and direct new work to establish global best practices to support ZEVs."

Monitoring and Impacts

Short and long-time objectives -Accelerate the adoption of zero-emission vehicles (electric, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell vehicles

-Governments announced that they will strive to make all passenger vehicles sales in their jurisdictions ZEVs by no later than 2050 and to collaboration on policies and actions to achieve their ZEV targets.

- Unlocks GHG reductions of over 125 million tons CO2 per year in 2030, and over 1.5 billion tons CO2 per year in 2050, in climate change mitigation when including lifecycle impact of electric vehicles

Roadmap and work plan - Governments actively working on designing and assessing current electric vehicle policy instruments

-The governments meet regularly to support their ongoing policy and technology developments in the respective jurisdictions and direct new work to establish global best practices to support ZEVs.

- Recruitment of additional governments; established website to publicize activities

- Governments commission and guide research to improve electric vehicle policy, incentives, and infrastructure activities

How are you tracking progress of your initiative Aggregate information from member jurisdictions; tracking global ZEV sales and technology
Progress that has been made by your initiative The ZEV Alliance member governments have continued to meet on a monthly basis to collaborate on wide-ranging policy and technical questions related to ZEV consumer incentives, electric power utility practices, and consumer awareness programs to best support ZEV deployment. The ZEV Alliance, with several prospective new member governments, met in person to chart out its priorities, ongoing activities, and plans to continue the implementation of the ZEV Alliance’s commitments in 2016 and

2017. The ZEV Alliance’s 14 governments have sustained and expanded many dozens of ZEV support policies throughout 2016, including new and continued ZEV consumer incentives, continued regulatory support for ZEV deployment, increased ZEV electric charging and hydrogen refueling infrastructure deployment, increased activities to promote electric power utility support for ZEVs, and increased public ZEV public education and awareness.

Available reporting The International Council on Clean Transportation has prepared and published reports for the ZEV Alliance, one titled, “Principles for effective electric vehicle incentive design.” It assesses the best practices in the design of electric vehicle incentives based on an analysis of these incentives across major markets in North America, Europe, and Asia. The most recent report is “Assessment of nextgeneration electric vehicle technologies,” analyzing vehicle models and the potential for lowered costs and increased production volume.
