Electricity can be used as a transportation fuel to power battery electric and fuel cell vehicles.
When used to power electric vehicles, or EVs, electricity is stored in an energy storage device such as a battery. EV batteries have a limited storage capacity and their electricity must be replenished by plugging the vehicle into an electrical source. The electricity for recharging the batteries can come from the existing power grid, or from distributed renewable sources such as solar or wind energy.

This effort is coordinated through the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI). TCI is hoping to build momentum by joining our voices in a statement of support for electric vehicles.
The Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) is a collaborative effort of the northeast and mid-Atlantic states to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector. Staff from the states’ departments of energy, environment, and transportation within the TCI region work to advance this goal through a variety of initiatives, including those that promote the use of clean vehicles and alternative fuels. The Georgetown Climate Center supports the states in their work by serving as the facilitator of TCI.
