  1. 1. Advanced Technology Light Duty Vehicles– Working to Ensure Consumer Acceptance<br />Clean Transportation<br />Technologies and Solutions SM<br />John Boesel<br />President and CEO<br />September 27, 2011<br />
  2. 2. The “Cackette Curve” <br />
  3. 3. Opening Thoughts: We Are at a Crossroads<br />Zero/Near Zero Criteria Emission/Super Low Carbon passenger cars needed to address public health and environmental concerns – what can we do ensure consumer acceptance? <br />What barriers remain for OEMs, suppliers, and consumers?<br />If incentives are important, action is needed. <br />Congress may be looking to reduce rather than increase<br />States are facing budget shortfalls<br />California’s nation-leading incentive programs face an uncertain future<br />Can fleets play role in jump-starting market and helping to build economies of scale?<br />
  4. 4. Incentives: a History of California Investments in Clean Transportation <br />Funding and Incentive Programs<br />2015-2016: Most clean transportation funding disappears<br />2007: AB 118 program created, providing up to $200 million/yr for climate and air quality<br />2004: AB 923increases air quality funding<br />1998: Carl Moyer Program created to reduce NOx<br />‘90s: air quality is primary focus<br />2000’s: climate & energy security gain importance<br />Today: multiple prioritiesrequire new investment strategy<br />2003: CARB, CEC adopt petroleum reductiongoals<br />2006: CA adopts landmark climate changegoals<br />1988: CA Clean Air Act makes air quality top priority <br />2009: Economic downturn increases focus on job creation<br />Policy Drivers and Priorities<br />
  5. 5. 2010’s Are Not 1990’s:  AQ, GHG, & Energy Security Solutions Now The Same<br />No room for on-road emissions – need to get to zero emission to meet air quality goals.<br />SCAQMD Analysis of Ozone, NOx Emissions, and Future Needs – 2030 Projections<br />It’s no longer a question of tradeoffs between air quality, climate change, and energy security<br />Over the longer term, the solutions needed for air quality are the same as those needed for climate and energy security<br />
  6. 6. The Impending Sunset of California State Incentive Programs<br />
  7. 7. The Impending Sunset of California State Incentive Programs<br />2015:AB 923 funds disappear. ($50 million/yr) <br />Moyer funding shrinks and focus narrows - LDV retirement no longer eligible<br />
  8. 8. The Impending Sunset of California State Incentive Programs<br />2016: AB 118 program (up to $200 million/yr) sunsets. <br />Smaller Moyer program continues, but no state funding remains for LDV incentives and technology advancement. <br />
  9. 9. How to Solve the Impending Financial Incentives Crisis?<br />Securing funding will be an uphill battle…we will have a greater chance of success if we:<br />Update programs to get more bang for the buck<br />Get air quality, climate, energy security benefits for every dollar invested<br />Helps “sell” the idea to different constituencies<br />Broader focus should yield job benefits as CA leads in low carbon tech<br />Broaden the coalition<br />Focus on multiple benefits, technologies, and approaches<br />Create simple, flexible, business-friendly programs<br />Start now<br />Work collaboratively to develop programs with broad support<br />Identify and pursue new revenue sources<br />
  10. 10. What Else? Non-Monetary Incentives to Drive Consumer & Fleet Purchases?<br />How to create value without direct state expenditures?<br />HOV/HOT Lane access?<br />Preferential parking?<br />Tax policy changes?<br />Changes to fee structures?<br />All of these options will also require broad coalitions, early engagement, and strong selling points. <br />
  11. 11. Goals for Today’s Workshop<br />Identify needs and creative strategies for driving the market<br />Determine what is needed for fleets to lead the way<br />Begin the discussion around improving and extending monetary and non-monetary incentive programs <br />Identify partners for turning today’s discussion into action<br />
