Energy in Oregon

​​​​​​​​​The Biennial Zero Emission Vehicle​ report provides information on zero emission vehicle adoption in Oregon, including on the current state of electric vehicle adoption, EV charging infrastructure, the benefits of EV adoption, ​​and the opportunities and barriers to ZEV ado​ption. 

ODOE is beginning development for the 2023 Biennial ZEV Report. This report will expand on the information provided in the 2021, which focused on the state of passenger vehicle electrification. The upcoming report will add to this information while also expand more into medium- and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles. To inform the report, ODOE will be updating this webpage regularly with information to follow report development and opportunities to provide input on the subject matter. Sign up for email updates here. 

ODOE's Role

The Oregon Legislature, through SB 1044, directed ODOE to complete a Biennial Zero Emission Vehicle report. To the extent possible, the reports will use existing studies, data, and analysis, and will focus on commercially available, or near-commercially available, ZEV technologies. The report is due September 15 of each odd-numbered year.​

Some of the specific reporting elements ODOE must address in the report include:

  • Whether the transportation sector is on course to reduce the share of greenhouse gas emissions from motor vehicles, as defined in ORS 801.360, consistent with the greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals set forth in ORS46A.205.
  • The sales figures and numbers of zero-emission vehicles that are owned in Oregon, differentiated, to the extent feasible, by demographic factors.
  • The zero-emission vehicles that are available for purchase in all market segments.​
