Consultant studies: EV usage & charging infrastructure economics

WYDOT has hired a consultant, HDR Inc. to write the technical specifications for the NEVI Request for Proposal. HDR completed studies regarding EV charging station economic return on investment and EV use estimates. Although HDR used different methodologies to complete the studies, findings are similar to WYDOT's analyses regarding potential challenges the NEVI program's EV charging infrastructure may have in our state. 


Joint Office releases Public Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Playbook

The Joint Office recently released a Public Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Playbook, which "provides interactive resources to help communities plan and build the infrastructure needed to support a zero-emission transportation system."
Communities, planning organizations, local and state governments, tribal nations, and other decision makers can use the Playbook to navigate key considerations for planning and deploying EV infrastructure. The modules include guiding questions, videos, worksheets, and additional resources to drive local progress. Modules can be followed in the order presented or used as stand-alone resources to help with specific priorities.

EEI develops EV program database

Edison Electric Institute developed an EV Program database to support customers in their transportation electrification efforts. The database includes investor-owned electric company offerings related to electric transportation, including make-ready programs, EV rates, fleet advisory services, charging station incentives, EV incentives, vehicle-grid integration pilots, and more.

Customers can utilize the EEI EV Program database to quickly locate programs that are available or pending in their state, what the programs include, the intended target customers for the program, and links to more information. Information on programs is provided by EEI member companies on a voluntary basis and may not reflect all current EV-related offerings. EEI will update the database quarterly to reflect any new programs that have been approved by state regulators and any changes to existing programs.

Please fill out the form to access the database.
