e-centricity, LLP, recipient of a grant award from the Governor’s Office of Energy, has completed a report that outlines an action plan for government actors to accelerate electrifying Nevada’s transportation system.
The report takes a closer look at how Nevada is well-positioned to ride the wave of vehicle electrification to further economic development, clean energy for energy independence, and clean air. Nevada-specific, the report is based upon engagement with almost two dozen each of Nevada government agencies and advocates, and also industry experts, respectively.
The first half of the report identifies the government agencies and actors in Nevada that bring authority and expertise to transportation electrification. It reviews Nevada’s public policies, legal authorities, and actions to date that further the issue and its outcomes, and the challenges inherent in moving transportation electrification forward as an independent objective.
The second half of the report recommends action items and opportunities available to Nevada’s government to accelerate transportation electrification in ways that work best for the State. Each action item description covers the reason it enhances transportation electrification, the government agencies responsible or involved, and the funding sources available to support each action item.
"The advancement of electrification of our transportation sector has long been a focus of the Governor’s Office of Energy," said Director Angela Dykema, "and this report will serve as a roadmap for the new Administration to help the State continue down the path paved under Governor Sandoval’s leadership to embrace this emerging technology and utilize it to further Nevada’s clean energy goals."
