ODOE's Role

The Oregon Legislature, through SB 1044, directed ODOE to conduct a Biennial Zero Emission Vehicle report. To the extent possible, the report 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, 2021 to the Governor and an interim committee of the state Legislature related to the environment.​​

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.​
