EV Accelerator Communities


The EC has developed and implemented an EV Accelerator model—a program that develops “EV Ecosystems” with U.S. cities that are leaders in EV adoption, through highly-engaged stakeholder development. Accelerator community locations include Northern Colorado and Greater Rochester, NY.


CASe Study:
Northern Colorado

DENC has launched several innovative programs that have continued to help northern Colorado exceed expectations for EV adoption, with sales typically 2-3 times the national average. Based on this success, DENC can serve as a model for other communities seeking to accelerate the adoption of EVs.

CASE Study:

The Rochester EV Accelerator (ROC EV) began with the ambitious goal of accelerating the adoption of EVs to 1% of all new vehicle sales. ROC EV promoted EV adoption by combining traditional community organizing principles with technical expertise related to EVs, infrastructure, and fleets.


As a top travel destination, Orlando was uniquely positioned to deliver a first-of-its-kind electric vehicle rental program. The Drive Electric Orlando test-drive program sought to increase awareness of and demand for EVs by letting consumers experience them in a fun, low-pressure way over several days. 


Your contributions to the Electrification Coalition help us electrify the U.S. transportation system, reduce U.S. oil dependence, and improve national and economic security.
