Washington Transportation Electrification Strategy (TES)

The Washington EV Council has been tasked with creating a statewide Transportation Electrification Strategy (TES) and ensuring that electric vehicle incentives and infrastructure are accessible and available to all Washingtonians.

Over the next several months, we will be gathering input from a wide range of Washington residents—drivers and non-drivers, members of communities large and small—who represent the diversity of backgrounds and perspectives that make up our evergreen state.

What Does this Process Look Like?

Public input and feedback will be requested throughout strategy development. Early in 2023 we will be gathering community input and feedback to identify and confirm which broad actions and goals should be prioritized in the TES. This summer, we will examine these priorities to identify what’s missing and address those gaps. Starting in the fall, we will begin rollout of the strategy in partnership with local jurisdictions and agencies across the state.

Public involvement opportunities will be designed and promoted to include a broad range of Washingtonians. Some events will be tailored to specific geographies, community sectors, and demographics to make sure that under-represented viewpoints are considered and addressed.

How Can I Get Involved?

This web page will compile information, resources, and opportunities for online and in-person public involvement, including workshops and webinars, community drop-in events, surveys, and focus groups.

Note: In-language and other accessible participation options may be available for some events. Please contact the TES engagement team at EVCouncilFeedback@CascadiaConsulting.com to learn more.
