His lecture will focus on how California is adopting a mix of policies, regulations, and incentives that together provide a coherent and durable framework for transforming vehicles, fuels, and mobility. These actions include aggressive greenhouse gas performance standards for vehicles with special provisions for plug-in PEVs, ZEV mandate, a low carbon fuel standard, and various monetary and non-monetary incentives. Sperling, as an academic and member of the California Air Resources Board, will describe and assess this policy model.
The session will feature a 60 minute talk followed by 30 minutes for question and answer. Refreshments will be provided.
This event is co-sponsored by the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, Center on Global Change and the Nicholas School of the Environment.
