National Grid's Statement on U.S. Vehicle Emission and Fuel Standards

Published 08-03-18

Submitted by National Grid

National Grid issued a statement today responding to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed Safer and Affordable Fuel Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Rule.

“National Grid continues to support the existing vehicle emission and fuel economy standards for vehicles made from 2022 to 2025 in order to reduce reliance on imported fuels, maintain a balanced energy mix, and reduce greenhouse gas and criteria air emissions. Greater adoption of electric vehicles and plug in electric hybrids is paramount in order to achieve all of these goals. For this reason, National Grid joined other utilities and states in challenging EPA’s determination that the existing emission standards for cars and trucks must be revised. The proposed rule released yesterday, the Safer and Affordable Fuel Efficient (SAFE) Vehicles Rule, takes a significant step backwards. National Grid firmly believes that the existing standards are an integral component of decarbonizing the transportation sector and achieving a clean energy future.”
