The National EV Charging Initiative (NEVCI) brings together OEMs, power providers, electric vehicle and charging industry leaders, labor, and public interest groups to signal they are ready, willing and able to realize the ambitious vision of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Members collaborate to accelerate shovel-ready charging infrastructure projects that will put people to work, infuse the economy with billions of dollars of investment, and increase access to clean transportation. In the next few months, we will launch a “Complimentary Policies Working Group” to craft an Energize! Agenda focused on local permitting, utility interconnection practices and policies, cost recovery for grid upgrades, and tariff reform needed to address barriers such as long interconnection lead-time, future-proofing, and demand charges. We will then translate the Energize! Agenda into model legislation and/or regulations for the NEVCI to promote. Please bring your organization’s voice to this dialog.
