ZETA collaborated with three major auto manufacturing associations, including the Alliance for Automotive Innovation, Autos Drive America, and the Electric Drive Transportation Association, to publish a letter calling on Congress to reform and expand the 30D tax credit, among other initiatives to spur EV adoption.
ZETA partnered with eight EV charging trade organizations to publish a letter urging Congress to expand the 30C tax credit, which will incentivize the deployment of EV charging infrastructure.
ZETA signed a coalition letter with more than 65 other organizations to support the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) rule, a policy to deploy zero-emission trucks across states.
ZETA signed a letter along with 18 clean energy groups, including Third Way, American Clean Power Association, Clean Air Task Force and Natural Resources Defense Council, to advocate for boosted funding for the Energy Department’s Loan Programs Office.
ZETA and Electric Mobility Canada sent a joint letter stressing the importance of transportation electrification to President Biden and Prime Minister Trudeau ahead of the Leaders Summit on Climate.
ZETA sent a letter with EV policy guidance to Congress as the bipartisan infrastructure negotiations continued.
ZETA joined CALSTART and several other organizations to write a letter to show strong support for the inclusion of robust investments in the electric vehicle (EV) battery supply chain as part of the Build Back Better Act.
Summary: This bill would add Section 45U to the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, establishing a tax credit for rare earth minerals. The proposed credit is $20/kilogram for rare earth magnets manufactured in the United States and $30/kilogram for rare earth magnets in which all components are domestically produced. The tax credit will phase out after 2030, decreasing to 70% in 2031, 35% in 2032, and 0% in 2033. The tax credit does not apply to any rare-earth magnet containing components sourced from a non-allied foreign nation.
Summary: The bill would require the Environmental Protection Agency Administrator to establish a rebate program to promote the purchase and installation of electric vehicle supply equipment for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.
Summary: This bipartisan bill would also raise the limit on the advanced fuel vehicle refueling property investment tax credit (commonly known as 30C) from its current $30,000 cap per location to a $200,000 cap per charger.
Summary: This bill would direct the Department of Energy to establish the Clean School Bus Grant Program to replace existing diesel buses with electric buses.
Summary: This bill would improve the quality and timeliness of federal permitting and review processes with respect to critical mineral production on Federal land.
Summary: This bill would direct the Secretary of Energy to establish a rebate program to promote the purchase and installation of publicly accessible electric vehicle supply equipment, and for other purposes.
Summary: These bills would direct DOE to assess and report on the state of, challenges to, and opportunities for greater deployment of EV charging infrastructure in disadvantaged and underserved communities. The bills would also authorize a $60 million competitive grant program, the “EV Charging Equity Program,” to increase deployment and accessibility of EV charging infrastructure in those communities.
Summary: The American Jobs in Energy Manufacturing Act of 2021 would strengthen American manufacturing by providing $8 billion for a 30% tax credit to manufacturers that retool, expand or build new facilities that make parts and technologies needed to reduce carbon emissions.
