Based on the experiences of the Northeast Electric Vehicle Network planning project, NASEO prepared the “State Strategies for Electric Vehicle Deployment: Outreach and Education Campaigns” toolkit to support state and territory energy offices’ efforts in deploying electric vehicles and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE, the infrastructure and equipment that comprise EV charging stations). Sourced from reports by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI), and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Coalitions in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, as well as phone interviews with subject matter experts, the toolkit explores the following:
Unique perspectives of key stakeholders in the EV deployment process;
Strategies for increasing “EV readiness” and EV deployment; and
Lessons learned in conducting EV-readiness outreach.
The development of this document was supported by a grant from NYSERDA and is the first work product released under NASEO’s new Transportation Committee.
