Visual Primer: EV Infrastructure Proliferates as States Electrify Transportation to Meet Decarbonization Goals
Expanding access to charging infrastructure is crucial to generate the exponential growth required to meet electrification goals and support carbon neutrality.
Measures to expand electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure are moving expeditiously driven by state zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) goals and decarbonization mandates. Among recent actions, Washington has adopted legislation requiring a mapping tool to plan charging infrastructure investments, while New Jersey is exploring an EV charging ecosystem for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. A handful of states have adopted measures to exempt charging station operators from regulatory oversight.
