AQES’ Role in Facilitating Electric Vehicle Deployment

In New Jersey, the transportation sector is a large factor in creating ground-level ozone, or smog, the State’s most pervasive health-related air pollutant.  

Tailpipe emissions also include toxics that are harmful to public health. And the transportation sector accounts for almost half of the State’s greenhouse gas emissions. Greater use of electric vehicles will address all of these issues, reducing pollution and improve the quality of our air.

The State’s Energy Master Plan highlights electric vehicles as one of the options that will drive New Jersey’s transportation future. Since electric vehicles run on electricity stored in a battery, they are ultimately powered by New Jersey’s electrical grid, which is among the cleanest in the nation. Therefore, charging an electric vehicle in New Jersey reduces harmful emissions compared to driving a gasoline or diesel powered vehicle. 

AQES looks at electric vehicle deployment from all angles, including the technology, charging infrastructure, regulations, incentives, outreach and education, and regional coordination.  The Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) program focuses on getting electric vehicles to NJ, while the highly successful It Pays to Plug In: Electric Vehicle Workplace Charging Grant Program encourages employers to install electric vehicle charging equipment. It Pays to Plug In has awarded nearly $850,000 for 180 charging stations, and will expand beyond workplace charging in the Fall of 2018.  AQES also works with the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to promote cleaner transportation alternatives.

Finally, AQES works to inform New Jersey’s public about the benefits of electric vehicles and dispel the myths about electric vehicle ownership.  For more information about AQES’ Electric Vehicle efforts, visit http://www.drivegreen.nj.gov/
