Municipal EV Roadmap Development. Forth works with cities to develop comprehensive strategies to identify initiatives that municipalities can undertake to accelerate the road to 100% transportation electrification. Forth's RFP Template for Cities: EV Charging and Public/Private Partnerships, supports cities in developing RFPs for EV charging on city property.
Municipal Planning for EV Chargers. Forth works with cities to plan for, site, and choose between ownership models for chargers installed either in the public right-of-way or on city property.
City Fleet Electrification. Forth works with cities to develop a plan for city fleet electrification; this includes bulk buys, purchasing policies, and leveraging incentives. In addition, Forth helps gauge the cost-effectiveness of outsourcing some of their light-duty fleet needs to local carsharing companies as an incentive to shift to EVs.
EV Incentive Development. Forth works with cities to identify specific incentives and benefits that municipalities can put in place to accelerate EV adoption. Sample initiatives that benefit EV drivers can range from HOV lane access to free or discounted downtown parking.
EV Readiness Codes. Forth helps cities prepare for the coming influx of electric vehicles by ensuring that building codes are updated to include “EV readiness” provisions for new builds and extensive retrofits.
Streamlining EVSE Permitting Processes. Forth works with cities to streamline their EV charger permitting processes to make the installation of new chargers as easy as possible. Burdensome permitting costs and processes add to the cost of EV infrastructure and the number of rejected applications.
