Eight States in the Intermountain West Release 2020 Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Progress Report

Source: Utah Governor’s Office of Energy Development

On December 17, 2020, the REV West partnership released their first annual Progress Report, detailing the group’s achievements towards developing interstate electric vehicle fast-charging corridors. The partnership was founded in 2017, when the Governors of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together on infrastructure development, with all eight Governors recommitting to the partnership in December 2019.

This 2020 Progress Report serves as an update to state leadership and the general public on the work executed by the State Energy Offices, and Departments of Transportation in each state. Since the MOU’s initial signing in 2017, over 100 fast-charging stations have been installed throughout the region, with at least another 75 stations planned for construction in 2021. This has led to over 1,000 miles of highway receiving the federal designation as “Corridor Ready” through the Federal Highway Administration’s Alternative Fuels Corridors Program.
