An Action Plan to Integrate Plug-in Electric Vehicles with the U.S. Electrical Grid

A plan for coordinating public and private sector action to accelerate the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) nationwide is presented in a March 2012 report produced by the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) and the Center for Environmental Excellence by AASHTO. The action plan consists of recommendations presented by a PEV Dialogue Group convened by C2ES in 2011 that included representatives from auto manufactures, electric utilities, environmental groups, and federal and state officials. The recommendations include encouraging utilities and other policymakers to create a consistent regulatory framework nationwide, optimizing public and private investment in PEV charging infrastructure, facilitating PEV rollout, and educating consumers on the costs and benefits of PEVs.
