A Policy Toolkit for Electric Vehicle Deployment and Adoption at the Local Level
NESCAUM worked with the Multi-State ZEV Task Force1 to develop this white paper. The paper identifies the benefits and challenges associated with transitioning vehicles driving on transportation network company (TNC) platforms to EVs and recommends specific actions that the Task Force states can take to support and accelerate the transition.
This toolkit is designed to provide public officials and advocates with model EV policies that accelerate the switch to clean vehicles in an effective, sustainable, and equitable way.
Once mandatory EV requirements are set in local code, the charging infrastructure automatically spreads throughout the community as neighborhoods grow and evolve, bringing down the cost of charger installations and allowing public and private investments to stretch further over a greater number of new EV charging stations.
Electric utilities in three West Coast states have announced the results of a study that could lead to significant reductions of pollution from freight transportation up and down the Pacific Coast and create jobs in an economy hit hard by the novel coronavirus.
This legislative kit includes policy guide providing legislators and their staff members an overview of electric vehicle issues and options. It also includes a review of model legislation and a fact sheet outlining the benefits of electric vehicle legislation and describes four areas where states can take action.
This memo provides charging cord guidance for on-street Level 1 (110-120V) charging in single-family and multi-family zones in Seattle. SDOT continue to explore additional, longer term EV charging solutions for single-family, multi-family, and mixed use zones.
Combining results from an industry survey with personal insights of utility industry experts, the paper delivers recommendations and best practices for improving how utilities should support, plan and deploy EV charging infrastructure.
This report from Rocky Mountain institute and the electric utility Seattle City Light (SCL) studies the potential impacts of increasing EVs in Seattle and offers insights for electric utilities to develop strategic transportation electrification plans that ensure grid reliability. The report argues that utilities should partner with city agencies to support "aggressive electrification commitments" and to ensure they keep up with technological changes. SCL is working directly with the City of Seattle through the EV Shared Mobility project to ensure that efforts towards transportation electrification are aligned.
This comprehensive guide provides readers with a complete understanding of managed charging, its potential benefits, the current industry state, utility program requirements, how managed charging communication pathways relay signals, and define the vendor landscape to date.
