Medium and Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicles

Multi-State Medium and Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle
Memorandum of Understanding

“The electric vehicle industry is primed for tremendous growth. We cannot afford to miss this opportunity to place clean transportation technology and infrastructure at the center of the nation’s economic recovery.” -Mayor Muriel Bowser

In July 2020, Washington, D.C. signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with 15 states in a commitment to phase out fossil fuel-burning medium- to heavy-duty truck and bus sales by one hundred percent by 2050, with a target for 30 percent of new truck and bus sales to be zero-emission by 2030.

The other states that have signed onto the MOU include California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington. The MOU is the largest-ever multi-state collaboration to address air pollution from the transportation and heavy-duty sector.

As part of implementing the goals under this MOU, DOEE and other states are conducting stakeholder outreach to develop a multi-state Action Plan that considers the needs of the community and use of market-enabling actions such as:

  • Incentives for vehicles and infrastructure;
  • Adoption of regulatory standards;
  • Utility actions to support infrastructure build-out and beneficial rate design;
  • Measures to increase the use of zero emission trucks and delivery vans in densely populated areas;
  • Innovative financing models and new funding sources;
  • Actions to encourage fleet purchases; and
  • Uniform standards and data collection requirements.

DOEE is currently asking for feedback for drafting this Action Plan. If you have feedback or questions, please attend one of our stakeholder feedback sessions below or fill out our MHDV MOU Stakeholder Feedback Form.
