In this webinar, ICF International experts examine key elements of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) readiness to help agencies prioritize actions and identify funding opportunities to support readiness and PEV deployment. Discussion topics also include lessons learned from experiences working in a range of urban areas with varying levels of PEV deployment, including San Francisco (the leading U.S. PEV market), Palm Springs, and Philadelphia. Key questions will be answered, including:

  • What are the prospects for PEVs in communities and the infrastructure needed to support them?
  • How should agencies prioritize next steps for local, regional, and state level PEV readiness?
  • How can agencies identify funding opportunities for readiness planning and infrastructure support?

PEV sales have steadily increased in the United States. With the recent Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by the governors of eight U.S. states to take specific actions to deploy more than 3 million PEVs by 2025, the prospects for increased deployment are bright. Dozens of resources are available to local, regional, and state agencies seeking to understand how they can become PEV ready. These resources can often be confusing or lack the specificity that planning agencies need to be PEV ready.
