Our Work

Michigan EV Policy

The Electrification Coalition conducts policy work in Michigan to advance the deployment and adoption of electric vehicles and development of charging infrastructure.

Michigan EV Policy Landscape

Michigan has already taken important steps toward an electrified transportation future, with actions by the state government, local governments, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector, including utilities and EV companies. Michigan’s future prosperity will be shaped by its ability to keep pace in adopting and guiding this transformation.

Learn more about the policies, strategies, and partners can help Michigan accelerate electrification in our Michigan EV Policy Landscape. This document reflects input from a wide range of on-the-ground stakeholders and builds upon the insights of previous roadmaps and guidance documents, including those developed by the EC. It reviews transportation’s current impacts to public health, safety, and the economy, and it identifies a set of high-impact areas of engagement.

Policy Priorities

  • State funding for electric school buses 
  • State fleet electrification  
  • Clean fuels policy  
  • Medium- and heavy-duty electrification 
  • Support for and engagement of the Council of Future Mobility & Electrification’s EV policy recommendations 
  • Maximize the impact of federal EV investments and programs on Michigan
  • Conduct education and outreach on EV policy opportunities to policymakers in rural and low-income communities 
  • Continue to provide state policymakers and municipalities with the right tools and resources to transition fleets

Electrifying Trucks and Buses in Michigan

The United States is the world’s largest consumer of petroleum, accounting for one-fifth of the global daily supply. Oil accounts for over 90% of energy use in the U.S. transportation sector. This overwhelming dependence on oil threatens our public health, energy security, economy, and climate.

Michigan EV Policy Bootcamp

In October 2020, the Electrification Coalition (EC) brought together more than 150 EV policymakers, industry experts, and advocates for a day-long session on accelerating EV adoption in Michigan. See a full list of speakers, slides, and a recording of the event. 

In 2023, the EC will host another Michiganspecific policy bootcamp, this time focusing on medium- and heavy-duty electrification. Subscribe below and follow the EC on social media to be the first to know about this event.
