Feebates: a Legislative Option to Encourage Continuous Improvements to Automobile Efficiency

Report or White Paper, 2008
http://www.rmi.org/Knowledge-Center/Library/T08-09_FeebatesLegislativeOption

Legislative Options to Improve Transportation Efficiency

Report or White Paper, 2005
http://www.rmi.org/Knowledge-Center/Library/T05-03_LegislativeOptionsTransportationEfficiency

With smarter legislation, the auto industry can restore competitiveness, boost profits, and displace oil use. The economic burden of high oil prices, concerns of supply and security, and environmental impact are justifiable reasons for state governments to act now. This report lays out several plans for state governments to pursue profitably. These plans include providing incentives to drivers of alternative fuel vehicles and hybrid vehicles, mandating state procurement of efficient vehicles, adopt a labeling program for low rolling resistance tires, requiring pay-at-the-pump insurance, and the establishment of a feebate program.

This independent, peer-reviewed synthesis for American business and military leaders charts a roadmap for getting the United States completely, attractively, and profitably off oil. Our strategy integrates four technological ways to displace oil: using oil twice as efficiently, then substituting biofuels, saved natural gas, and, optionally, hydrogen. This route for the transition beyond oil will expand customer choice and wealth, and will be led by business for profit.
