There are scores of sources of funding available to support development and use of low and zero-emission transportation solutions. Government funding is available at the federal, state, and local levels, particularly in areas suffering from high levels of air pollution. Private funding can sometimes be secured from investment funds and venture capital firms that focus on advanced transportation, alternative energy, and environmental business opportunities.
This section of the TransPower website describes a few of the largest Government programs that provide funding for low and zero-emission transportation solutions. A few of the most prominent investment funds and venture capital firms with interests in this area are also identified.
