Key Policies and Incentives to Unlock an Electric Vehicle Future

NCSEA is hosting a series of informative panel conversations and networking events throughout the year leading up to the annual Making Energy Work Conference scheduled to take place in October. We’ll be hosting these events across the state to provide a preview of the content and network of professionals you’ll engage with at the in-person conference.  

At the Raleigh Policy Forum in March, we’re covering the significant strides made in EV deployment in the state of North Carolina, along with the policies and incentives necessary to reach Governor Cooper’s goal of 1.25 million EVs on the road by 2030. Important topics we’ll cover in this panel conversation include EV and time-of-use rate design, federal and state funding for charging infrastructure, utility programs, and other necessary policies.
