ICSC Encourages EV Infrastructure Collaboration

February 9, 2022

ICSC continues to work with officials at the state and federal level on the development of guidance for electric vehicle infrastructure deployment and has submitted a letter to the U.S. Department of Transportation encouraging collaboration.

The recently enacted Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (Public Law 117-58) included significant funds to incentivize the build-out of a national network of electric vehicle charging infrastructure ($5 billion over five years) to facilitate long-distance travel and to provide convenient charging where people live and work. This federal funding is expected to have a particular focus on rural, disadvantaged and hard-to-reach communities.

“Many of our members are already building EV charging infrastructure and have first-hand knowledge of the technology, energy requirements, permitting and logistics for locating charging units,” Jennifer Platt, ICSC vice president of federal operations, said. “By locating charging stations in the marketplaces where people already shop, work, eat and play we can alleviate ‘range anxiety’ and help people feel more comfortable adopting an EV lifestyle.”

In addition to passenger vehicles, ICSC is also asking for the recharging needs of heavier duty vehicles used in the supply chain to be considered during the deployment of infrastructure funds.
