In this event hosted by the Washington State legislature’s Joint Transportation Committee (JTC), the study team led by Atlas Public Policy will present the findings from a report that analyzes the electrification potential of public vehicles across Washington State. The goal of the study was to provide Washington with comprehensive, vehicle-specific electrification cost estimates both today and in future and deliver actionable information on how to efficiently move forward with fleet electrification. Key outcomes of the project included the development of an inventory of existing state fleet vehicles, a comparison of total cost of ownership of available alternative EVs, and cost projections of electrification for 2025, 2030, and 2035. In addition to this, the study team assessed the required statewide charging network to support fleet electrification, quantified emissions abatement from electrification, and explored financing strategies and mechanisms to accelerate electrification in Washington.
The presentation will take place from 9am – 12pm PT via videoconference and streamed on TVW here.
