As part of the N.C. Clean Transportation Plan process, five work groups were created by the N.C. Department of Transportation to allow for public and stakeholder input.
Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Plan for Light-Duty Vehicles
This workgroup will focus on the opportunities to advance the transition of passenger cars and trucks to zero-emission vehicles. This might include consumer education, incentives and affordable financing options, workforce development, and the availability of vehicles.
Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Plan for Medium & Heavy-Duty Vehicles
This workgroup will develop an action plan to transition delivery trucks, construction equipment, and other large vehicles to zero-emission vehicles. This might include outreach and education, innovative financing and incentives, workforce development, and utility (grid) needs. It will also focus on impacted communities near densely populated and disadvantaged communities.
Fleet Transition Plan for Public & Private Vehicle Fleets
This workgroup will work with public and private entities to accelerate the transition to zero- and low-emission fleet vehicles. This could include public (state and local) fleets as well as private fleets.
Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) Reduction Plan
This workgroup will look at a variety of transportation demand management strategies to reduce vehicle miles traveled on North Carolina roads. This might include transit, rail, bike, pedestrian and other non-vehicle transportation modes.
Clean Transportation Infrastructure Plan
This workgroup will develop a strategy to ensure the electric vehicle and alternative fuel infrastructure is sufficient to support the private and fleet transition to zero- and low-emission vehicles. This will include identifying gaps along travel corridors and in rural areas.
