Policies that Impact the Acceleration of Electric Vehicle Adoption

This project began as an effort to research and analyze policies designed to accelerate the transition to electrified transportation. However, since the EV industry is a dynamic and transformative sector, keeping pace with incentives, programs, and policies became a challenge. As such, this report highlights programs that have influenced adoption, provides a critique of best practices, and provides references to databases where current information can be found so that interested parties can access the most recent developments in EV policy initiatives. The research results include a description of exemplary programs, a state-by-state listing of policies, and a discussion of the impact of federal policy and regulations relative to vehicle fleets. Finally, an excerpt from a study of state incentives to identify best practices is provided to help guide the development of future regulatory schemes.
