Electric Vehicle Readiness Roadmap#

Project Overview#

In 2018, the City of Fort Collins developed an Electric Vehicle (EV) Readiness Roadmap to support current and future EV adoption in our community. The Roadmap establishes a vision, goals, and clearly defined roles for City of Fort Collins Departments, the private sector, and the Fort Collins community. The Roadmap includes:

  • Action items for City efforts to inform policies and programs
  • Strategies for increasing and leveraging investment in EVs and charging infrastructure
  • EV charging station research and EV adoption forecasts to inform infrastructure needs and equitable placement locally and regionally
  • Best practices for education, outreach, and addressing barriers to EV adoption
  • Regional coordination strategies
