The Transportation Electrification Roadmap for the District of Columbia, developed by the Electrification Coalition, is both a guiding document and plan of action to transition our local transportation sector to zero-emission vehicles by 2045. The Roadmap is designed to support the District’s important goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
Emissions from diesel- and gasoline-powered vehicles contribute approximately 22% of the District’s annual citywide greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) produced. The Roadmap focuses on the specific transportation goals of Title V of the Clean Energy DC Omnibus Amendment Act of 2018 that will reduce these greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles.
The Transportation Electrification Roadmap will:
- Identify and pursue short-term strategies for the District to achieve at least 25% zero-emission vehicle registrations by calendar year 2030.
- Inform and guide the District’s medium-term strategy for converting its public buses, high-capacity private passenger/light-duty vehicles, and commercial fleets to electric vehicles by 2045.
- Outline clear pathways to achieve 100% replacement of DC’s school buses with electric buses at the end of their useful life.
