ZEV credits regulation and cap and trade program

This project is aimed at evaluating recent innovative schemes for incentivizing sustainable vehicle and fuel production and financing clean transportation technology development through the industry players themselves. The first, the California Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEV) credit scheme, is unique program that evolved over a twenty year period and was able to drive local low-emissions vehicle innovations through a mandate combined with market-based implementation mechanism. The second is a recent Cap-andTrade scheme aimed at incentivizing energy and fuel supply through market forces. The two programs, although not officially linked, are both serving similar air-quality improvement and fuel and GHG emissions reduction targets under the state’s scoping plan for better air quality and later on - reduced GHG emissions. After outlining these programs’ development and evaluating their success, this report will highlight the potential and impediments for similar programs design for implementation in Chinese cities.

ZEV credits introduction and Tesla case study

This report is aimed at introducing the California ZEV-Credits Program, a recent innovative scheme for incentivizing sustainable vehicle production and financing clean transportation technologies development through the transportation sector. The Program’s success will be evaluated through a single case study of world’s leading California-based electric vehicle manufacturer, Tesla Motors. This report will end with initial suggestions for policy-makers and related stakeholders on how a similar program could be evaluated and tailored for use in China.

Analysis on the Carbon Emission Reduction Co-benefit of Coal Cap Policy in China's Air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan

This study shows that coal consumption control can significantly contribute to both air pollution control and Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) reduction. The CO2 reduction co-benefits brought by such policy may vary via implementing different coal use substitution plans. This study suggests that local governments should consider maximizing the CO2 reduction co-benefits when designing coal consumption reduction and substitution plans.
