Plug-In Electric Vehicle Readiness Scorecard

The Plug-In Electric Vehicle Readiness Scorecard helps communities assess their readiness for the arrival of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).

PEVs are an exciting new transportation option that has the potential to benefit a community’s economy, energy security, and environment. As local and regional leaders know, PEV readiness is a community-wide effort, requiring charging infrastructure, planning, regulations, and support services. This scorecard supports these efforts by helping leaders in cities, counties, and larger regions:

  • Evaluate a community’s PEV readiness
  • Receive feedback about strengths and offer ways to improve
  • Record and track progress toward PEV readiness.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) encourages you to collaborate with local and regional stakeholders when using this tool to evaluate your community’s PEV readiness.

This tool was developed by DOE's Clean Cities program.
