Colorado Plans to Eliminate Emissions from Road Transportation

Colorado is moving ahead with a plan to get nearly 1 million electric vehicles (EV) on its roads by 2030 and, for the first time, has adopted a long-term goal of transitioning to 100 percent electric and zero-emission vehicles.

The state’s Energy Office recently released the Colorado Electric Vehicle Plan 2020, an update to the 2018 EV plan that established a target of 940,000 EVs by 2030. The new plan retains that target and lays out a vision for a “large-scale transition of Colorado’s transportation system to zero emission vehicles.” That vision includes electrifying all light-duty vehicles and making all medium and heavy-duty vehicles zero-emission (including electric, hydrogen, and other zero emissions technologies).

In the meantime, Connecticut may have to rely on its reputation — and its great wealth — to secure the financing it needs to continue maintaining its aging highways, bridges and rail lines.

“I think a commitment to do something about the STF [Special Transportation Fund] and a more detailed look at revenues will be at the head of the agenda” when the regular 2021 General
