The Electrification Coalition conducts policy work in Nevada to advance the deployment and adoption of electric vehicles and development of charging infrastructure.
Nevada has already taken important steps toward an electrified transportation future, with actions by the state government, local governments, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector, including utilities and EV-related businesses.
Learn more about the policies, strategies, and partners can help Nevada accelerate electrification in our Nevada EV Policy Landscape. This document reflects input from a wide range of on-the-ground stakeholders and builds upon the insights of previous roadmaps and guidance documents, including those developed by the EC. It reviews transportation’s current impacts to public health, safety, and the economy, and it identifies a set of high-impact areas of engagement.
The United States is the world’s largest consumer of petroleum, accounting for one-fifth of global daily supply.
Oil accounts for over 90% of energy use in the U.S. transportation sector. This overwhelming dependence on
oil threatens public health, energy security, our economy, and our climate.
In March 2022, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak signed onto a multi-state agreement to accelerate the electrification of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, pledging that at least 30 percent of all new trucks and buses sold in the state will be zero-emission vehicles by 2030, and 100 percent by 2050. Nevada joins 16 other states and the District of Columbia as signatories on the Multi-State Medium- and Heavy-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Memorandum of Understanding.
Sisolak made the announcement via pre-recorded video at an event in Las Vegas hosted by the Electrification Coalition, convening stakeholders from across Nevada for in-depth discussions on the deployment and adoption of medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicles throughout the state.
We brought together close to 100 EV policymakers, industry experts, and advocates in December 2020 for a day-long session on policies that will accelerate EV adoption in Nevada. Our “EV Policy Bootcamp” included presentations from the following leaders:
