California's decision to ban the sale of new gas powered vehicles (GPVs) was a landmark decision because California's market power has the potential to shift global car production towards cleaner vehicles. As the market for electric vehicles is relatively new, supporting policies will have to be crafted to incentivize the development of this market. This paper looks at the California Solar Initiative for prior examples of how California has handled early green technology adoption policies to see if they focused on equity or efficiency. Additionally, potential re-imaginings of the subsidization and pricing of the Mexican electricity market were looked at to understand potential targeting policy methods.
