Milestones for Electrifying Public Fleets

This new guide from the WSU Energy Program is designed to help public entities plan and implement steps to add EVs to their fleets now and in the future.


WA Public Sector Alternative Fuel Vehicle Policy

This is a selective summary of public-sector authority and policy directives; it does not include budget provisos, preferential tax treatments, or other incentives. Prepared by Peter Moulton, WA Department of Commerce.

  

Electric Vehicles for Washington’s Public Fleets & Facilities

The Washington Department of Commerce published Electric Vehicles for Washington’s Public Fleets & Facilities to address common questions from fleet and facility managers.This resource is being updated; revised materials will be available here soon.

  

Get Started on Transportation Electrification

Washington seeks to reduce all climate pollution by 50% in the next nine years and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Because transportation is the largest source of climate pollution, efforts to electrify transportation are ramping up. Learn how Resource Conservation Managers can help in this transition by optimizing new fleet operations; bridging communications with electricity providers; and tracking and reporting energy, cost, maintenance, and emissions savings over time in this new factsheet.

Additional Resources

The Electrification Coalition EV Policy Showroom is a collection of tools and resources for policymakers, EV advocates, industry partners and other stakeholders seeking to advance policy to accelerate the deployment and adoption of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure. These seven tools are:

  • State EV Policy Dashboard - searchable database of state policies pertaining to transportation electrification, and monitor activity on EV fees.
  • EV Roadmap Roundup - includes EV and EVSE incentive programs, utility rate structures, consumer education, and equity considerations.
  • EV Funding and Finance Guide - identifies funding and financing options to accelerate transportation electrification.
  • EV Tools & Calculators Clearinghouse - compiles tools and calculators for quantifying the impacts of electrification efforts.
  • AchiEVe Toolkit - provides model EV policies at state, local, and utility levels to help accelerate the switch to EVs in an effective and equitable way.
  • Freight Electrification Report - addresses advantages of electric trucks over their diesel counterparts.
  • ZEV State Scorecard - ranks key ZEV policies being implemented in various states.

State Energy Strategy
The WA Dept. of Commerce publishes this strategy as a blueprint for how Washington can nearly eliminate the use of fossil fuels while continuing to maintain and grow a prosperous economy by 2050.

Washington Tracking Network
The WA Dept. of Health developed mapping tools that let you rank the risks communities face from environmental burdens such as fossil fuel pollution. This suite of tools are an outcome of the Clean Energy Transformation Act, which commits Washington to an electricity supply free of greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.
