About the Governor’s Office ZEV Summit:
The summit is an invitation-only forum to discuss the state of zero-emission technology and the ZEV market, and the actions needed to meet the goals of the Governor’s Executive Order B-16-2012. However, vehicle manufacturer representatives and administration officials will be available to discuss and describe the latest vehicle and infrastructure technology.
Governor Brown has just taken the next step in directing the state’s efforts with Executive Order B-30-15 which calls for an additional 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gases below 1990 levels by 2030.
Since transportation is the largest single contributor of greenhouse gases in the State (38% of the total), zero-emission vehicles will play a major role in further emission reductions.
