A New Resource

May 24, 2013

The recently-released Advanced Energy Legislation Tracker (http://www.aeltracker.org/) allows users to find and track advanced energy legislation at the state level. The site is searchable by state, policy category (including transportation, emissions, and financing and financial incentives), keyword, bill number, and/or sponsor. Search results include information that you would typically find on a state legislature website (bill sponsor, recent actions, a link to bill text) in a concise and consistent format.

The Advanced Energy Legislation Tracker is a good compliment to the Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) Federal & State Laws & Incentives database (http://www.afdc.energy.gov/laws/). While the AFDC provides summaries of the incentives, laws, regulations, and programs that are in place, the Advanced Energy Legislation Tracker shows legislation currently under consideration. As such, both tools are useful as background for conversations with your state legislators, stakeholders, and others about alternative fuel and advanced vehicle policies and incentives.

Note that presently the Advanced Energy Legislation Tracker is only updated periodically (the current database contains bills introduced prior to March 1st).
