GOHEV in Energy Bill
Jamais Cascio, 28 Jul 05

The final energy bill version now in the hands of the US Congress is disappointing all around, eliminating any conservation and vehicle efficiency rules while expanding subsidies for fossil fuels, but Green Car Congress notes it does have a small positive element: a $40 million appropriation (over 2006-2009) to establish a program to develop a plug-in hybrid/flexible fuel vehicle.

Preference is to be given to proposals that:

  • Achieve the greatest reduction in petroleum fuel consumption
  • Achieve not less than 250 miles per gallon petroleum fuel consumption
  • Have the greatest potential of commercialization to the general public within 5 years

    More a silvery patch than a silver lining, but still good to see.
