Government Rollout: Simplify Regional Infrastructure Deployment Across Jurisdictions

Regional coordination is key to our highways being charge-ready.  The EV industry is fast-moving, and municipalities and government entities are struggling to keep up.  How governments collaborate to cut red tape will determine how fast they can scale infrastructure and meet the needs of the EV charging industry.  The lack of EVSE policies, regulations, and government coordination hinders the ability to meet demand. Join this session to learn how municipalities can create regional alignment in the nation’s plan for charging infrastructure. 

Takeaways include:

  • Develop aligned strategies through crucial partnerships
  • Involve key stakeholders to fast-track the deployment of infrastructure
