EV Readiness Workbook

EV Readiness is a collection of strategies, policies, and actions that empower a community to support the deployment of plug-in electric vehicles and charging infrastructure, and, as a result, derive the associated benefits. The purpose of this workbook is to introduce the concept of EV Readiness to community stakeholders in the Southeast—and in particular, in the Tri-State region of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina. The workbook provides resources and tools to enable a community to become EV Ready. “EV Readiness” requires the adoption of a number of strategies and policies from a variety of stakeholders to support the deployment of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure.

  • Section I introduces the concept of EV Readiness from both a national perspective as well for communities in the Southeast
  • Section II includes an in-depth examination of the roles of various stakeholders, including government, fleet managers, and property managers/employers.
  • Section III provides a number of resources for stakeholders to support their efforts to help their community become EV Ready.
  • Section IV introduces the Plug-In Electric Vehicle Readiness Scorecard. The U.S. Department of Energy developed the scorecard as a tool to help a community assess their readiness for plug-in electric vehicles and the infrastructure needed to support the vehicles. With the help of the scorecard, a community can elevate its EV Readiness, receive feedback on its strengths and areas in which they can improve, and record and track their progress towards EV Readiness.
