Electric Vehicle Roadmap for Connecticut
On April 21, 2020, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) released the Electric Vehicle Roadmap for Connecticut: A Policy Framework to Accelerate Electric Vehicle Adoption (EV Roadmap). The EV Roadmap represents a comprehensive strategy for accelerating the deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) through
- policies and regulatory tools addressing transportation equity,
- purchasing incentives,
- consumer education,
- charging infrastructure expansion,
- consumer protection,
- integration of EVs into the electric grid,
- utility investment, and
- utility rate design.
Wide-scale EV deployment is among the primary solutions for achieving the state's statutorily required economy-wide greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets of 45 percent and 80 percent below 2001 levels by 2030 and 2050, respectively.
The EV Roadmap focuses specifically on the pathways to achieve wide-scale EV deployment, which complements transportation sector GHG strategies, and will correspondingly drive reductions in harmful criteria pollutants from the transportation sector, help the state meet federal health-based air quality standards, and mitigate communities' exposure to mobile air source toxicants.
