Accelerating Electrification: Key Policies to Transform Cars and Trucks
The decarbonization of the light-duty vehicle (LDV) fleet in the United States will be an important policy priority for the coming decades. Policies such as subsidized construction of charging stations, refundable tax credits for electric vehicles, and a tradable permit system for vehicle manufacturers, are all possible tools in facilitating this transition. But charging station subsidies demonstrate the greatest impact.
Harvard economist James Stock joins moderator Jesús Fernández-Villaverde to discuss his research investigating the potential for government policy to accelerate the transition of the LDV fleet to electric vehicles.
This will be based on his recent paper: Policies for Electrifying the Light-Duty Vehicle Fleet in the United States.
