Transportation Electrification within the US Southeast — 4th Annual Report

The fourth annual “Transportation Electrification within the Southeast” report, printed by Atlas Public Coverage in collaboration with the Southern Alliance for Clear Vitality, benchmarks progress on transportation electrification from July 2022 by means of June 2023 in six states throughout the Southeast: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Whereas the Southeast lags behind nationwide averages in EV gross sales, charging station deployment, utility funding, and public funding, the area is a nationwide chief in capturing EV-related investments and jobs, with 40% of producing investments and 35% of all introduced manufacturing jobs so far.

On Wednesday, September 6, report authors and contributors from Atlas Public Coverage and SACE hosted a webinar specializing in report highlights, together with:

  • Over the previous 12 months, 5.9% of all new light-duty autos bought had been EVs, with three states topping the 7% market share threshold within the second quarter

  • Southeast utilities lag the nationwide funding per capita in transportation electrification, with Florida Energy & Mild investing essentially the most per buyer
  • Although states have allotted only a few new state funds to transportation electrification, they’ve significantly elevated entry to accessible federal and VW Settlement funds, with North Carolina main the pack per capita.
