Local EV Policy Toolkit

Local governments can be effective leaders in the transition to electric vehicles (EVs), implementing policies to spur electrification faster than their surrounding states and the nation as a whole. Vehicle electrification can help cities, towns, and counties achieve many top policy objectives, including reductions in climate emissions, improvements in public health and sustainability, advances in equity, economic development, job growth, and the EV market, and improved energy security.

To learn more about the policies your community can enact to accelerate EV deployment and adoption, download “Electrifying Transportation in Municipalities: A Policy Toolkit for EV Deployment and Adoption at the Local Level.” This report is designed to support local policymakers and advocates by providing a summary of the top transportation
electrification policies that local agencies should consider.

The intended audiences for this report include mayors, councilmembers, commissioners, city/county administrators, finance officials, metropolitan planning organizations, air quality districts, environmental health departments, fleet managers, transit directors, and sustainability directors.
