Clean Transportation

Transportation contributed to approximately 39% of Commonwealth greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in 2014 (1). Therefore, the adoption of clean transportation vehicles and infrastructure has the potential to address Massachusetts’ energy and pollution challenges. Massachusetts’ thriving innovation sector can also foster the development of cutting-edge clean transportation technologies and the growth of clean transportation companies. Alternative transportation is growing in the Commonwealth. According to the MassCEC Industry Reports, businesses supporting alternative transportation technologies grew by 18% from 2015-2016. As of June 2016, there has been an uptick in charging station construction and fleet grants, despite lower gasoline and diesel prices than in previous years. In the first two quarters of 2017, a total of 2,256 zero-emission vehicles were sold in Massachusetts, compared to 114 vehicles sold in all of 2011.
