Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) offer enormous potential to reduce oil imports and America’s carbon footprint, but they face major market barriers. The PEV Dialogue Group convened by C2ES brings together automakers, electric utilities, policymakers, environmental and consumer advocates, and others to develop consensus approaches to accelerate PEV deployment nationwide. Culminating a year’s work by the Dialogue Group, An Action Plan to Integrate Plug-in Electric Vehicles with the U.S. Electrical Grid, provides a comprehensive strategy for public and private action to create infrastructure, educate consumers, and build the PEV market. Following the Plan’s release, the Dialogue Group will work with businesses, stakeholders, and officials at the local, state, and federal levels to promote its implementation.
