Charging industry agrees on carbon credit standards

Green Car Reports

Driving on electricity produces less carbon than driving on gas. Yet in most places, no one gets credit for lowering those carbon emissions. In an effort to reduce the cost of installing electric-car charging stations, a new agreement by the Electric Vehicle Charging Carbon Coalition (EVCCC), calculates carbon credits to.
