Title:
The Drive to Efficient Transportation: State Policies to Encourage the Purchase and Use of Light-duty Advanced Technology Vehicles and Alternative Fuels

Abstract:
This handbook developed by the Alliance to Save Energy with support from Ford Motor Company is designed to help states and localities encourage their residents to purchase and use energy-efficient transportation technologies. The handbook provides state legislators with details of 15 incentives currently in use in various states, including nine types of purchase incentives (tax credits, grants, rebates); four types of operational incentives such as exempting hybrid electric vehicles from high occupancy vehicle lane restrictions or parking fees; and two types of manufacturing incentives to promote economic development and job creation. The handbook also discusses the impact of transportation on U.S. energy use and greenhouse gas emissions; defines energy-efficient transportation technologies; and describes current and future energy-efficient technologies, the role of alternative fuels, and federal laws and regulations that, over time, have encouraged advancements in vehicle technologies and fuels.
