Low emission vehicles are a hot item. Nine northeastern states and 23 manufactures have opted for the clean car program.

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) first adopted low-emission vehicle (LEV) standards in 1990. The first LEV standards ran from 1994 through 2003. As the demand for sport utility vehicles and pick-up trucks continue to grow and are often used for passenger vehicles rather than work vehicles, CARB adopted more stringent LEV II standards for California to meet federally-mandated clean air goals outlined in the 1994 State Implementation Plan (SIP). LEV II regulations, run from 2004 throught 2010, represent continuing progress in emission reductions.

When LEV II is fully implemented in 2010, it is estimated that smog forming emissions will reduce by 57 tons per day in the Los Angeles area and 155 tons per day statewide.

What are Alternative Fuel Vehicles?

Flex-fuel vehicles (FFV) have a single fuel tank, fuel system, and engine. The vehicles are designed to run on regular unleaded gasoline and an alcohol fuel

A bi-fuel vehicle has two separate fuel systems, with the capability to easily switch from one to the other. The vehicle can be powered by either system.

Electic Vehicles (EVs) The only vehicles to meet California's Zero Emission Vehicle requirement, battery electric vehicles offer quiet, pollution-free operation. Unfortunately, electricity generation is not pollution free so EVs produce indirect environmental impacts, but are still far cleaner than gasoline-powered vehicles. Though still range limited, recent advances in battery and electric motor technologies have made EVs more practical than ever before.

Center for Energy Efficiency and Renewable Technologies
CEERT is a nonprofit public-benefit organization founded in 1990 in Sacramento. The board and affiliates are comprised of concerned scientists, environmentalists, public interest advocates and individuals involved in developing innovative energy technologies that share a vision to benefit the environment with sustainable solutions to California's growing appetite for energy.

Originally formed to address the electricity supply policy debate that originated in California, CEERT has branched out to support and coordinate the environmental and public interest group response to utility restructuring efforts in other states. CEERT also provides experience with air pollution regulation and compliance issues, technical utility restructuring implementation issues, nonpolluting electricity supply resources and clean transportation technologies to the public and policymakers on a regional and national basis.
