Assessing the potential for low-carbon fuel standards as a mode of electric vehicle support

Low-carbon fuel standards (LCFS), which regulate the carbon intensity of fuels supplied to transportation, can provide long-term, durable funding for EV infrastructure and EV purchasing incentives as other policies such as rebates expire or are phased-down. This study assesses the role that a national LCFS program can play in accelerating the rate of light-duty passenger EV and charging infrastructure deployment.
