Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers grant recipient
SPEA received more than $790,000 from the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers to study the economic impact of the 2025 federal corporate average fuel economy, greenhouse gas, and the state-level zero-emission vehicle regulations in California and at least nine other states.
The goal of the study, July 2015-February 2017, was to forecast the economic impact of the requirements on passenger vehicle sales and employment. John D. Graham was the project’s principal investigator with a team comprised of Sanya Carley, Denvil Duncan, Saba Siddiki, Nikos Zirogiannis, Becky Snedegar, and SPEA students Joshua Cisney, Dan Esposito, Shilpi Goel, Alyssa Julian, Arthur Lin Ku, David Michael, and Celeste Wanner.
On March 9, 2017, the team released their final report from the 18-month study, titled A Macroeconomic Study of Federal and State Automotive Regulations with Recommendations for Analysts, Regulators, and Legislators. This report builds on the team’s preliminary report, Rethinking Auto Fuel Economy Policy: Technical and Policy Suggestions for the 2016-2017 Midterm Reviews. The findings and views expressed in the reports are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers or Indiana University.
National Science Foundation
The National Science Foundation awarded researchers Sanya Carley, Sean Nicholson-Crotty, and Saba Siddiki (Syracuse U.) a grant: “Toward the Diffusion of Sustainable Technologies: The Case of Electric Vehicles.” The grant is focused on technology and policy diffusion and the manner in which electric vehicles may (or may not) mitigate some of the persistent barriers that perpetuate the technological lock-in of the internal combustion engine.
