Transportation Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEV) Plan
The North Carolina ZEV Plan (A Strategic Plan for Accelerating Electric Vehicle Adoption in North Carolina) outlines four key areas where the state can provide support for potential EV buyers: Education, Convenience, Affordability, and Policy.
The North Carolina ZEV Plan aims to reduce economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions to at least 50% below 2005 levels by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions no later than 2050. It also aims to increase the total number of registered zero-emission vehicles in North Carolina to at least 1.25 million by 2030. An executive order from Gov. Roy Cooper also established a goal that by 2050 zero-emission vehicles will comprise 50% of all in-state vehicle sales.
North Carolina Clean Transportation Plan
The North Carolina Clean Transportation Plan (NCCTP) is a guidance document that provides a coordinated strategy for accelerating decarbonization in the transportation sector. The plan outlines how North Carolina can prepare for a clean transportation future and provide equitable outcomes for everyone. The NCCTP was co-created with local, regional and state agencies; transportation providers; non-profit organizations; social justice and equity focused groups; environmentally focused groups; academic partners; clean cities coalitions; advocacy groups; utility providers; and private companies.
Generation180 is proud to be a member of North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association (NCSEA), which works to enable clean energy jobs, economic opportunities, and affordable energy options for North Carolinians.
