Connected Vehicle Solution Deployments and Non-Attainment Areas
Environmental Considerations in Planning
Research Idea Scope
Utilizing the results of NCHRP 25-25, Task 23 –
Guidelines for Environmental Performance Measurements Final Report, investigate
using positive performance measures to obtain reductions in criteria pollutants
and greenhouse gas emissions to obtain EPA credits and/or funding.
This objective of this study is to review and investigate
defined performance measures established by specific agencies identified in
NCHRP 25-25, Task 23 and determine what, if any, performance measures can be
documented to show a reduction in vehicle emissions.
Urgency and Payoff
This research is intended to determine whether States and
local agencies (and their DOTs), who have established performance measures and
documented measurements, can obtain EPA credits and/or funding to support
deployment of Connected Vehicle solutions.
