Connecticut’s transportation sector is the largest source of statewide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, responsible for 38 percent in 2016, the most recent year for which data is available.

In October of 2019, the Connecticut Department of ENERGY & ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION released a draft report titled “Electric Vehicle Roadmap for Connecticut” which has a goal of 500,000 EV’s in Connecticut by 2030.   The 500,000-vehicle target is needed to meet Connecticut’s 2030 GHG reduction target.
