Electric Vehicle Readiness Roadmap

Project Overview

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

  • 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


  • Increase EV use in Fort Collins by providing the clarity and direction needed to advance Fort Collins to the next level of EV adoption
  • Help Fort Collins achieve their 2015 Climate Action Plan goals by reducing the carbon emissions and local air quality impacts of vehicles used within the city
  • Inform and align with ongoing planning efforts, including the ongoing City Plan and Transportation Master Plan update, and the upcoming analyses of the electric grid distribution system planned by Fort Collins Utilities


The project began in January 2018 and is scheduled for completion at end of September 2018.
