The Electrification Coalition conducts policy work in Virginia to advance the deployment and adoption of electric vehicles and development of charging infrastructure.
Virginia has taken steps to support an electrified transportation future, with coordinated action by the state government, local governments, the private sector, utilities, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders. Key policy opportunities in the next couple of years include decisions in utility rate cases that impact EVs, decisions on additional allocations of the $90 million awarded to Virginia in VW Settlement funds, and legislative decisions on incentives and building codes.
Learn more about the policies, strategies, and partners can help Virginia accelerate electrification in our Virginia state policy factsheet below. 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.
We brought together a robust group of EV policymakers, industry experts, and advocates in September 2020 for a day-long intensive discussion about how to accelerate EV adoption in Virginia. See a full list of speakers, slides, and a recording of the event.
