Partnership Opportunities for Electric Mobility Infrastructure

From providing technical expertise to convening local stakeholders to hosting charging stations, partners play a key role in most electric mobility charging projects. This section describes the following key partners that can assist urban entities in planning, funding, and implementing electric mobility charging, as well as those partners specific to micromobility- and transit-related charging infrastructure:

Statewide and Multistate Partners

Statewide and multistate partners, including organizations planning for EV corridors, State environmental, energy, and transportation agencies, and multistate initiatives working on climate change and electric vehicles, can help identify key stakeholders and provide technical assistance or funding. Tribes and Tribal organizations working on climate change and transportation can identify stakeholders who are working to improve their infrastructure and provide technical assistance or funding.

Local and Regional Planning Partners

Local and regional planning partners include Clean Cities coalitions that can help urban entities get started on a charging infrastructure project and transportation planning agencies that can help align charging infrastructure projects with broader transportation planning efforts and available funding. In addition, these partners include shared micromobility and charging infrastructure providers; transit, ride-hailing, taxis, and delivery fleet operators; and others such as cities, academic institutions, and advocacy groups.

Electric Utilities

Electric utilities are a critical partner in planning for charging infrastructure. In addition to providing technical advice on connecting charging infrastructure to the local electric grid, they are often active long-term partners, taking ownership of some or all aspects of charging infrastructure installations.

Charging Networks

Charging networks can own, operate, and maintain charging stations and provide technical expertise on charger technologies.

Site Hosts

Site hosts, including tourism destinations, local businesses, transportation facilities, residences (including multi-unit dwellings), and municipal and community sites, can lead charging infrastructure projects or be important partners for entities that wish to implement charging infrastructure but lack dedicated space.
