The Fuels Institute’s Electric Vehicle Council (EVC) released a new report on the regulatory environment of the electric vehicle market. The report, “A Best Practice Guide for EVSE Regulations,” harnesses the vast market experience of key stakeholders and identifies policies implemented by authorities having jurisdiction that support the efficient installation of EV charging stations, as well as those that impede such installations.
The report serves a critical need identified by previous EVC reports, as well as those published by other organizations, that the soft costs incurred navigating inadequate or outdated regulatory requirements are a significant barrier to development of a robust EV charging infrastructure.
The report also includes best practice recommendations from regulated entities themselves. These are stakeholders that have accumulated years of experience installing and operating EV-charging infrastructure around the U.S.
Stakeholders from the EV-charging industry, fuel retailing, utility and metropolitan planning organizations shared their expertise and actionable and practical recommendations as jurisdictions begin to develop and implement EV-charging policies.
