AchiEVe: Model Policies to Accelerate Electric Vehicle Adoption

In January 2023, the Electrification Coalition, Sierra Club, Plug In America, and Forth released the latest version of AchiEVe: Model Policies to Accelerate Electric Vehicle Adoption, a national toolkit designed to accelerate the switch to clean, electric vehicles (EVs) in an effective and equitable way by providing various stakeholders with model EV policies at the state, local, and utility levels. 

This is the fifth edition of the toolkit, originally released in 2017. In addition to the latest information on state and local EV policies, the toolkit has sections focused on the billions of dollars in funding from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA); tribal governments; micro-mobility; and state and national parks. 

The toolkit shows the power of bold and strategic policies for vehicle electrification, highlighting several detailed examples from locations across the nation where policies are working.
