Northeast Electric Vehicle Network in Action

Through the Northeast Electric Vehicle Network, TCI states are working together to:

  • Develop a partnership with the private sector, utilities, and other public entities.
  • Encourage the streamlining of permits for the installation of home and public charging stations and remove other barriers.
  • Coordinate regional, state, and local planning to ensure that charging stations are placed in locations that maximize both local and regional travel.
  • Ensure a consistent experience for electric vehicle users.

Northeast Vehicle Network Agreement

As part of a broader regional strategy to facilitate the deployment of a range of alternative fuels and vehicles, an agreement was reached in late 2011 to coordinate efforts under the Transportation and Climate Initiative to develop a Northeast Regional Electric Vehicle Network.The Network is the anticipated result of TCI’s coordination of electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure planning and deployment throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The Network refers to more than just physical infrastructure; the Network includes the partnerships and connections necessary for a successful transition to cleaner and more efficient EV transportation choices.
