To kick off 2022, CERTs hosted a series of internal EV (electric vehicle) focused webinars. CERTs steering committee members and staff had a chance to hear from local experts on the latest EV facts and trends. Learning opportunities like these mean our statewide team can better support Minnesota communities in their EV journeys.
Read on to learn what CERTs staff thought about the series. But first, check out a few of our EV projects already in motion for 2022:
- We are working on an initiative to increase EV adoption by reducing barriers throughout Greater MN by engaging with cities, tribal nations, utilities, and businesses (e.g. auto dealerships).
- Great Plains Institute, one of the four CERTs partners, is preparing to launch EV-ready Tribal Nations and EV-ready Cities certification programs.
- We are actively gathering information to better enable communities to take advantage of several resources — including federal funding — that will be available this year.
