Report or White Paper, 2008
A feebate is an incentive policy that encourages the continuous improvement of automobile fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions by providing incentives for manufacturers to build more efficient vehicles and rewarding consumers who purchase more efficient vehicles. This paper explores: why RMI believes a feebate is a valuable tool, recent analysis that RMI has done on feebates, what the current status of the feebate is, and how the feebate could interact with existing laws.
Report or White Paper, 2005
Traditional policy prescriptions for transportation efficiency have been largely misguided. 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.
