Fuel-Fired Heaters: Emissions, Fuel Utilization, and Regulations in Battery Electric Transit Buses

With 3,533 full-sized zero-emission buses (ZEBs) on the roads of 46 states in the U.S. and more on the way, transit agencies are looking to address the issue of keeping the bus cabin warm without experiencing significant range limitations. This CALSTART report provides insight on the current technology and use of fuel-fired heaters in transit buses and the challenges transit agencies face in pursuing zero-emission goals with a diesel-fueled auxiliary heater.

New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts Positioned for Success by Adopting Advanced Clean Truck Rule in 2021

Three key states in the Northeast—New Jersey, New York, and Massachusetts—ended 2021 by making substantial progress for electric trucks when they each adopted California’s Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) regulation at the end of December. These Northeast states, home to more than two million medium- and heavy-duty vehicle registrations combined, join Oregon and Washington in requiring a progressively greater share of truck sales be zero-emission through 2040. Together these six states represent roughly 20% of medium- and heavy-duty vehicle sales nationally.
