EIN primarily is focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector by advancing clean hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. EIN works closely with the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the California Energy Commission (CEC), state legislative offices, industry leaders and other NGOs to ensure effective implementation of the key incentives, regulations and funding programs that address climate change. EIN leverages the experience it has gained working on technology-specific regulations (biodiesel, hydrogen, electric vehicles) to provide direct input on the design and language of new and revised regulations to accelerate the deployment and adoption of fuel cell vehicles and other alternative fuel options.
EIN continues to:
- Advocate for the important role that FCEVs must play to achieve the zero emission vehicle goals adopted by California and nine other states.
- Pursue policies that support all fuels and technology solutions that help address petroleum dependence, climate change and air quality.
- Promote sustainability measures that accelerate the transition to alternative fuels and avoid unintended consequences or negative impacts of these policies.
- Support policies that create clear regulatory certainty but do not stifle investment in alternative fuels or have a chilling effect on the transition away from petroleum.Pursue policies that support all fuels and technology solutions that help address petroleum dependence, climate change, and air quality.
