Gas prices, vehicle emissions, and government incentives are all driving forces behind increased consumer demand for electric and zero-emission vehicles. Automakers are investing billions to develop product lines and a domestic EV manufacturing presence. Many states have targeted transportation electrification goals and action plans, and EV coalitions are working to collaborate across federal, state, and local utility activities. At the federal level, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) provides billions in funding over the next five years and a framework for states to start planning for charging networks to support transportation electrification.

In this timely webinar, experts in transportation policy and planning and electricity industry stakeholders will discuss the implications of these trends and how A/E firms ought to be advising their clients and planning for the EV future. Presenters will lay out the market context and outlook, identify available funding sources, discuss data needs and analytics, and highlight best practices for collaboration across sectors to optimize investments.

Participants in this session will gain a fuller understanding of:

  • The EV market context, including adoption, fleet turnover, and available charging technologies;
  • Federal and state DOT planning frameworks for EVs and funding sources for charging infrastructure;
  • Alignment of the energy sector with respect to grid investments, utility and consumer considerations, and operations;
  • A/E firm and client preparation and planning.

This session will identify what firms and their clients need to do now to get ahead of this massive industry shift, and practical steps for public and private organizations to assess their electrification infrastructure needs and leverage funding opportunities.
