State Transportation Electrification Strategy Best Practices

Mar 14th 10AM to 11AM PST


We will discuss state EV deployment and adoption strategies

State Transportation Electrification Strategy Best Practices

States are leveraging federal funding and making significant strides in developing strategies and frameworks to advance clean modes of transportation. 

Last November, California‚Äôs Transportation Electrification Framework established a $1 billion transportation electrification program to help accelerate EV adoption. The Oregon Department Of Transportation Climate Office updated the Transportation Electrification Infrastructure Needs Analysis (TEINA) in 2022 to identify charging needs and gaps across the state with the aim of developing the infrastructure needed to meet its electrification goals over the next 15 years. 

In this webinar, we will hear from states designing their transportation electrification plans and learn about the TEINA work in Oregon. Our panelists will share updates on their EV infrastructure plan and strategies and how states can utilize the $5 billion available in federal infrastructure funds to successfully and equitably scale EV infrastructure. Speakers will also provide best practices for planners/developers to incorporate clean transportation into their planning strategies.
