Research output: NRELTechnical Report


Although electric vehicles hold myriad promises for customers and society, limited experience in developing countries leave decisionmakers grappling with how to most effectively direct time and resources to support EV deployment. This report lays out a framework for policymakers, regulators, and other decision makers in developing countries for how to plan, implement, and scale electric vehicle deployment in their jurisdictions. The “building blocks” of electric vehicle deployment address particular technical, institutional, or economic topics that together underpin a safe, sustainable and efficient transition to an electrified transport sector.
