Resources for EV Infrastructure Planning
This section of the toolkit compiles resources and tools for EV infrastructure planning and implementation.
Resources on the below linked pages are organized by subject area and are labeled with resource type—namely, calculators and software, datasets and maps, and additional guidance and reference:
Charging and Energy Needs
Charging and Energy Needs provides tools and resources for determining the amount of EV charging infrastructure needed in a particular area and identifying locations for electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).
Cost Analysis provides multiple tools and models for analyzing and comparing the costs of owning and operating EV charging stations, comparing conventional fleet vehicles with EV alternatives, calculating the economic and environmental costs and benefits of alternative fuel vehicles and fleets, and more.
Environmental and Social Impact
Environmental and Social Impact provides tools for estimating emissions and measuring environmental and economic impact.
Equitable Planning provides interactive maps and tools to explore community data, identify and understand issues and energy burdens facing minority and low-income populations, and support public engagement in transportation decision making.
Laws, Regulations, and Incentives
Laws, Regulations, and Incentives compiles dashboards, databases, and lists of EV- and EV-infrastructure-related laws, regulations, and incentives.
Implementation, Installation, and Maintenance
Implementation, Installation, and Maintenance provides tools and guidance for deploying and supporting electric vehicle infrastructure, including along corridors, at workplaces, and in national parks.
Technology Options provides guidance and resources for selecting electric vehicle chargers and improving the fuel efficiency of freight transportation.
Educational Materials provides toolkits, trainings, and webinars on electric vehicles, EV charging, and stakeholder engagement, and materials for building partnerships to meet EV goals.
Vehicle Comparisons provides resources and tools that allow users to compare electric vehicle models and expected fuel usage and energy costs, including comparing efficiencies across EV and conventional vehicle models.
