Our Work

Nevada EV Policy

The Electrification Coalition conducts policy work in Nevada to advance the deployment and adoption of electric vehicles and development of charging infrastructure.

Nevada EV Policy Landscape

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.

Electrifying Trucks and Buses in Nevada

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.
