Today, the South Carolina Energy Office (Energy Office) released the Electric Vehicle (EV) Stakeholder Initiative Report, which summarizes opportunities to advance EV deployment in South Carolina. The Report features the collaborative work of over 350 diverse stakeholders to examine the legislative and regulatory landscape for EV access and adoption, identify challenges and opportunities, and develop actionable recommendations for South Carolina.
The EV Stakeholder Initiative was launched in November 2020 by the Energy Office with the assistance of the Duke University Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions. The resulting Electric Vehicle Stakeholder Initiative Report contains recommendations from stakeholders which range from statewide awareness efforts to the development of a statewide electrification roadmap.
“We appreciate the work and dedication of each and every stakeholder who has been an integral part of the Report,” said Sara Bazemore, Director of the Energy Office. “While every recommendation presented in the Report does not reflect consensus, the recommendations do reflect collaborative discussions of voluntary stakeholder working groups.”
The Report can be viewed online here.
The Energy Office, which is housed within the South Carolina Office of Regulatory Staff, serves as the main energy-planning organization for the state by advancing South Carolina’s energy strategy and policy through education and outreach. The Energy Office promotes the efficient use of all energy sources. For more information, visit energy.sc.gov.
