ACEEE State Transportation Electrification Scorecard
The ACEEE State Transportation Electrification Scorecard evaluates the progress that states are making to electrify transportation and thus reduce transportation-related GHG emissions. Specifically, the Scorecard ranks states on their policies to scale up deployment of light-duty and heavy-duty electric vehicles (EVs) and on their progress building the necessary charging infrastructure for personal, commercial, fleet, and public transit EVs. Based on centralized data sources, original research, and input from experts, we scored states across six categories: EV and EV charging infrastructure planning and goal setting, incentives for EV deployment, transportation system efficiency, electricity grid optimization, EV equity, and transportation electrification outcomes. Top finishers include California; New York; Washington, DC; Maryland; Massachusetts; Washington State; Vermont; Colorado; Oregon; and New Jersey. The Scorecard includes policy recommendations that all states can use to advance transportation electrification.
