Our Work

North Carolina EV Policy

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

North Carolina Policy Landscape

North Carolina has 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 companies.

Learn more about the policies, strategies, and partners can help North Carolina accelerate electrification in our North Carolina 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.
