The environmental law center at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law and the Maui Electric Vehicle Alliance (Maui EVA) at the University of Hawai'i Maui College have released "Electric Vehicle Paradise," a new report on solutions to boost electric vehicle deployment in Hawai'i.
The report outlines ways that residents, businesses, policymakers, and other stakeholders can ensure the mass adoption of electric vehicles in Hawai'i, both to serve the state's residents and its eight million visitors each year.
The report findings were summarized at the Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit and Expo panel presentation in Honolulu: "How Can Hawai'i Lead the World in EV Deployment?" on Monday, Sept. 9, where a panel of industry representatives and research analysts offered insights on key state and federal policies needed to grow this automotive market segment.
