Island Regional Vehicle Electrification Study

Project Information

Location: Island County, WA


Services Provided

  • Electric vehicle infrastructure planning
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Community outreach
  • Policy development

We worked with the IRTPO to develop a strategic assessment of municipal fleet electrification potential and infrastructure needs and develop model electrification policies that can be modified by participating jurisdictions. Our team documented emerging electromobility trends, researched local, state, national, and international EV-ready codes, analyzed appropriate options for electric chargers and transit vehicles, mapped the locations of existing fleet vehicles and electric charging infrastructure in Island County, Washington, and analyzed financial programs and strategies. Public outreach to county residents and private businesses provided information about daily commute and vehicle charging behaviors and identified potential charging infrastructure hosts for county fleet and island visitors.


  • Prepared model electrification policies that support the adoption of fleet electrification for municipalities, port authorities, regional transit agencies, and the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island
  • Developed an assessment to improve charging infrastructure accessibility and adoption of EV-ready building codes among local jurisdictions
  • Educated residents and public agencies about the general benefits and technical considerations of building electric fleet and charging infrastructure
