Nobody can pull policy makers from throughout the State of California in one room together quite like CALSTART. Their conferences are the best place to meet and speak with high level officials focused on clean transportation.
--Zachary Kahn, WAVE

Public policy has a significant impact on the clean transportation technology industry, with local, state, and national laws and regulations acting as major industry drivers. As a technology-neutral consortium and nonprofit, CALSTART seeks to provide guidance and support for these critical policies, with a particular focus on the leading edge policies in California.

Our close contact with fleet managers, policymakers, technology developers, and manufacturers puts the organization in a valuable position to bridge the gaps between the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. We also provide member companies with up-to-date information on the complex web of public policies that affect the clean transportation technology industry.

CALSTART's John Boesel Statement on California’s Landmark Renewable Energy Law

Today's action by the Governor will ensure that, over time, grid-connected transportation will become cleaner and better for the environment. SB 350 will improve the outlook for the growth of the electric transportation sector," said CALSTART's President and CEO, John Boesel, who spoke from the signing ceremony today in Griffith Park. Read the full releaseRead more about California's climate initiatives.
