The popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) and other low or no-carbon vehicles are transforming the transportation sector.

Transportation includes EVs and so much more.

Bringing together solar and other clean resources with vehicles, charging stations, and other vehicle-grid-integration technology will be critical to realize the potential of carbon-free electric mobility.

As we plan for a lower-carbon society, reducing the climate impact of transportation is paramount. The transportation sector is the United States’ largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions producing nearly 30% of total emissions. Within the transportation sector about 80% of emissions come from light, medium, and heavy-duty vehicles. Electric vehicles are key to reducing emissions nationwide. In addition to their carbon reduction potential, electric vehicles can lower transportation costs and improve local air quality.

The benefits of electric vehicles also come with new challenges. As more and more low and no-carbon transportation technologies enter the market, increased electric load will require additional investments in the distribution system and will impact the bulk power system as load profiles change. Vehicle electrification initiatives require proactive, system-wide planning that looks beyond the transportation sector. As we electrify our vehicles, we must ensure that the electricity serving this new load is low-carbon or carbon-free in order to meet our climate goals.
