Cities Charging Ahead!, co-led by CERTs and Great Plains Institute, was a year and a half long cohort project helping 28 MN cities explore what it means to be ‘electric vehicle ready’. The project focused on three key areas: fleets, charging infrastructure, and EV-ready standards. Three panelists shared their experiences, lessons learned, best practices, and answered questions on how they are getting their cities ready for the EV revolution:
- Charging - Michael Keim, Fleet Manager, City of Bloomington
- Fleets - Jen McLoughlin, Sustainability Specialist, City of Woodbury
- EV Ready Standards - Tara Brown, Sustainability Specialist, City of Edina
