The Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) has committed to working with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to support workplace charging and grow the plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) market.
By signing on as an Ambassador to the EV Everywhere Workplace Charging Challenge, TCI will support and promote the deployment of workplace charging infrastructure by providing resources to states and the over 100 organizations that have signed TCI’s Pledge to Support Electric Vehicles in the Northeast.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s EV Everywhere Workplace Charging Challenge aims to achieve a tenfold increase in the number of U.S. employers offering workplace charging by 2018. The Challenge offers benefits to employers who are considering installing charging, such as technical assistance, public recognition, and guidance for assessing whether workplace charging is right for your organization.
TCI, a collaboration of the transportation, energy and environmental agencies from 11 northeast and mid-Atlantic states and the District of Columbia, launched the Northeast Electric Vehicle Network in 2011 to reduce barriers to PEVs and enable regional travel. Since the Network’s launch, TCI has developed a set of resources and worked with communities throughout the northeast to become PEV ready, and continues to support state PEV programs by sharing best practices and identifying opportunities advance PEV deployment.
