Models of Clean-Vehicle Adoption improve Public Policy Design, Implementation, and Adaptation
Policies promoting clean-vehicle adoption are excellent candidates for more evidence-based approaches.
Technical, behavioral, and economic evidence can help agencies target environmental policies more effectively, identifying direct and indirect benefits as well as adjustments needed across diverse stakeholder groups. By establishing clear standards for monitoring and evaluation, the state can also better communicate its goals and progress toward them. Moreover, lessons learned from experience can facilitate effective policy adaptation.
