Report provides practical and actionable recommendations for developing and implementing national and local policies for EV charging
ALEXANDRIA, VA., October 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — A new report released today by the Electric Vehicle Council of the Fuels Institute, A best practice for EVSE regulation, uses the extensive market experience of key stakeholders to identify policies implemented by authorities with jurisdiction that support the efficient installation of electric vehicle charging stations, as well as policies that hinder such installations.
The report addresses a critical need identified by previous EVC reports, as well as those published by other organizations, that the soft costs incurred in navigating inadequate or outdated regulatory requirements are a significant barrier to developing a robust EV. charging infrastructure.
“While many places in the country are beginning to plan for EV growth, research has shown that most states and places surveyed had little to no policies regarding public charging of EVs.” states John Eichberger, executive director of the Fuels Institute. “This is expected to change rapidly in the coming years as states and municipalities recognize the need to prepare for the emergence of electrification and receive funding from a variety of sources. Many state and local officials will have to consider for the first time develop policies and implement infrastructure to expand.”
Policy topics covered in this guide include:
all over the state
- defining public utility and allowing kWh charging
- installation-related policy
- surgery-related policy
- EV Charging Incentives
- utility-related policies
- accelerated licensing requirements
- parking requirements
- Building code requirements suitable for EV
- signage requirements
- technical requirements
The guide concludes with best practice recommendations from regulated entities themselves, i.e. stakeholders who have years of experience installing and operating EV charging infrastructure around the US. MPOs) shared their expertise and actionable and practical recommendations as AHJs began developing and implementing EV charging policies.
