Welcome to Texas PEV Clearinghouse!

CCET has developed this Wiki on behalf of the plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market stakeholders of Texas. It is designed to provide a central location for current information about electric vehicle market development in Texas for reference by community and State policy leaders and interested consumers. The Wiki is an outgrowth of recent efforts by PEV market participants to coordinate and exchange information about various projects and initiatives being undertaken by various regional groups across Texas.

A primary outcome of recent coordination efforts has been the development of a white paper on Issues and opportunities of PEVs in the Texas electric market. The white paper is available on this Wiki for review and download but it contains an appendix placeholder (Appendix B) of currently active projects and programs underway by Texas stakeholders that are “efforts in progress”. Appendix B is being maintained in its current status by each of the key stakeholder groups and is organized under regional groupings listed in the far side of this tab. The various stakeholder groups have agreed to be responsible for maintaining their project status reports. The Wiki contains a number of other useful pieces of information also listed in the far side of this tab that will be occasionally updated by CCET.

Kelley Blue Book's Top 10 Green Cars for 2011

Respected auto buyer's resource Kelley Blue Book (KBB) has published its list of Top 10 Green Cars for 2011. Working with the criterion of gasoline-and therefore emissions- savings, KBB ranks its green vehicles in order of combined EPA-estimated fuel economy. When choosing the 2011 list of green cars, the editors "were immediately struck by the much wider range of vehicles" eligible for consideration. Among the key trends the editors noticed are: a larger variety of hybrid choices; more high-efficiency gasoline-powered vehicles; and notably, "the rise of the electrically-powered vehicle." - Source - Plug-In Texas NewsLetter
