ZEV Community

The ZEV Community brings together all levels of governments to share and learn about exciting ZEV (zero emission vehicle) initiatives taking place around the world.

Many states, regions, cities and businesses have already recognized the benefits of the ZEVs, but now we need to urgently accelerate the transition to clean transport.

The ZEV Community enables best practice exchange between different levels of governments to support their ambitions and accelerate vertical integration of policies. By exchanging information and experiences, ZEV Community members can develop their knowledge and create the partnerships needed to succeed. 

The ZEV Community is co-hosted by the Under2 Coalition and the ZEV Alliance, in partnership with C40 Cities and the U.S. Climate Alliance. All participants and members of these networks are invited to take part.

The ZEV Community is supported by the Scottish Government and the ClimateWorks Foundation.

The ZEV Community enhances existing networks to greatly accelerate information sharing and make more connections among ZEV leaders. The community provides: 

  • Regular webinar exchanges throughout the year combining technical content on curated ZEV topics, interactive discussions and announcements around upcoming events.

  • Highlights of global ZEV successes through articles and case studies to demonstrate positive ZEV trends around the world.

  • Networking and information exchange, with the coordination of an annual ZEV calendar of activities of the ZEV Community and its partner networks, and updates on the latest ZEV reports and analysis. 

  • Links with ZEV business champions from The Climate Group’s EV100 initiative, with networking opportunities and representatives from leading companies providing insights into corporate issues and successes.

  • Resources and support to answer policy, technology, and infrastructure questions. The Community will also provide support to governments from emerging economy regions and facilitate in-depth exchange in smaller teams around specific topics.

Here's why you should get involved:

1. An opportunity to be a ZEV leader

Don't miss this exciting opportunity to design the future of clean transport within states and regions. Being part of the group positions participants as world leaders in ZEV adoption and offers the opportunity to demonstrate that leadership on a global scale.

2. Inspiration from successful policy

Be inspired by the innovative policies that Under2 Coalition governments around the world are already taking to accelerate ZEV adoption and use those to deliver success within your jurisdiction.

3. A route to your ZEV commitments and beyond

Many members of the Under2 Coalition are already making ambitious commitments to transition to zero emission transportation. Being part of the ZEV Community project will help keep you on track to deliver these commitments and inspire you to go further.

4. Now is the time to act

The coming decade will be a defining one for the global ZEV market. Falling battery prices, increased ZEV commitments from automakers, and growing consumer acceptance may create a turning point in ZEV adoption. This means acting now can keep you ahead of the game.

The Under2 ZEV Community Project identifies innovative policies implemented by Under2 Coalition members to accelerate the uptake of ZEVs. The case studies are available on the Under2 Policy Action Map
