The EC works across executive, legislative and regulatory venues at the state level to encourage policies and actions to achieve widespread transportation electrification. Beginning in 2020, the EC launched a new initiative, the State EV Policy Accelerator, to engage five states—Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia—to develop a replicable model advancing EV adoption through policy action bolstered by fleet-scale deployment efforts. This is combined with a Rapid Response program to support targeted policy education and support efforts in other states. Subscribe below to stay up to date on this program.
The EC Freight and Goods Delivery Electrification Project advances the electrification of the freight industry in the U.S. through pilots and policies that will help accelerate the transition.
The EC’s state policy work seeks to advance ambitious policy opportunities, and will bolster efforts such as:
Utility rate design
Public fleet electrification
EV POLICY BLUEPRINTS FOR ACTION: State-specific policy recommendations
EV RESOURCE TOOLKITS: Sample policy language, best practices, case studies, and public engagement plans
EV POLICY BOOTCAMPS: Stakeholder education and engagement using a “Teach, Train, Transform” model
PROOF OF CONCEPT EFFORTS: Including state-wide accelerator communities, transit and school bus electrification initiatives, and state fleet programs
