Plug-in Electric Vehicle (PEV) Infrastructure Promotion

The Maryland Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Council (Council) promotes the use of PEVs in the state. Specific responsibilities of the Council include the following:

  • Develop an action plan to facilitate successful integration of PEVs into the Maryland transportation network;
  • Assist in developing and coordinating statewide standards for streamlined permitting and installation of electric vehicle supply equipment;
  • Recommend a statewide charging infrastructure plan and incentives to support investment in PEVs;
  • Develop targeted policies to support fleet purchases of PEVs; and
  • Encourage local and regional efforts to promote the use of PEVs.

The Maryland Department of Transportation must provide staff support to the Council with the assistance of the Maryland Energy Administration and the Maryland Public Service Commission.
