California looks to boost EV market through shared purchasing power at GCAS

“Earlier this year Governor Jerry Brown signed an executive order setting a target to put five million ZEVs on the roads by 2030, alongside an eight-year $2.5bn initiative to install another 250,000 vehicle charging stations and 200 hydrogen fueling stations across the state by 2025.

Brown, who is the driving force behind next month’s Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, is hoping that the Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Challenge, one of a series of challenges ahead of the 12-14 September event, will help put California’s transition to EV into even higher gear.

The challenge, which is being led by The Climate Group and C40 Cities, aims to amplify collective EV purchasing power by bringing together existing programmes, such as The Climate Group’s EV100 programme, and C40’s Fossil Fuel Free Streets Declaration to procure only zero-emission buses.”
