Increasing electric vehicle policy efficiency and effectiveness by reducing mainstream market bias

Carried out by: Green Energy Consulting, University of Michigan, Rochester Institute of Technology


Erin Green, Steven Skerlos and James Winebrake argue that U.S. electric vehicle policies are inefficient and ineffective. They introduce “mainstream consumer bias” as an explanation for policy deficiencies and propose an alternative policy agenda to address some of these policy problems. Proposed policy options include strategic niche management, targeted R&D and incentives, and loans.
