Electric Mobility Planning Resources: Charging and Energy Needs
Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Projection Tool (EVI-Pro) Lite
DOE – Calculator/Software
Web app to help estimate the amount of EV charging a State (or alternatively, a specific urban/suburban area) needs to support a user-supplied number of plug-in EVs. Reports the number of Level 2 and DCFC plugs needed and (for urban/suburban areas) graphs a weekday electric load profile. Provides statistics on the current amount of charging plugs and EVs in the State or region as reference numbers. This tool is a part of the EVI-X Modeling Suite of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Analysis Tools, which has tools for network planning, site design, and financial analysis. Note: May be most useful for State-level planning.

Alternative Fueling Station Locator
DOE – Dataset/Map
Interactive web map containing all alternative vehicle fueling stations in the United States and Canada, including EV charging stations. Users can filter by charger and connector type, public or private access, owner type, and possible payment methods and can download the underlying data.
Electric Vehicle Charging Needs Assessment
NASEO – Guidance/Reference
A report on key barriers and opportunities for investment in EV infrastructure in the Intermountain West. Includes analysis and findings based on a questionnaire issued to EV stakeholders in eight States. The appendix summarizes current EV infrastructure gaps, questionnaire responses, and opportunities for each individual State.
Regional EV Charging Infrastructure Location Identification Toolkit (ILIT)
M.J. Bradley & Associates – Calculator/Software
A collection of tools to assess the suitability of potential DCFC sites in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast States, from North Carolina to Maine. The tools include the Microsoft Excel-based ILIT Model to identify and rank candidate locations based on user priorities, the online Results Mapper to analyze and visualize the candidate locations, and the online Data Viewer to overlay and explore geographic information system data layers with different economic, demographic, and environmental metrics.
Southeast Regional Electric Vehicle Information Exchange (SE REVI)
Planning and Deployment Map, National Association of State Energy Officials – Dataset/Map
Interactive web map with information on EV infrastructure planning, policy development, and program implementation in the Southeastern region of the U.S. (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). This map was designed to help coordinate EV infrastructure planning and identify charging station gaps. Users can turn layers on or off as needed.
