With the billions in federal dollars available through a range of programs, the United States is poised for the rapid development of public EV charging infrastructure. However, siting charging stations effectively and equitably is a complex task requiring the consideration of many key factors, such as:
Community micro travel
Land use patterns
Available grid capacity
Risk of climate disasters
Equitable distribution of charging resources also will help ensure that the electrification of transportation does not widen the gap between wealthy and disadvantaged communities.
This playbook will highlight the stakeholder perspectives in siting EV chargers and the data necessary to holistically develop an effective and equitable nationwide EV infrastructure.
