A Shared Future: Electrification and Renewable Energy featuring Example State Legislation to Support Electrification Strategies

Consumers are driving the nation towards an increasingly electrified future supported by a growing share of renewable energy.

However, building an electricity grid to support evolving consumer expectations requires significant infrastructure investments. The smartest way to approach these investments is to develop a comprehensive electrification strategy, including EV charging infrastructure, renewable energy additions, and transmission expansion.

AWEA released “A Shared Future: Electrification and Renewable Energy featuring Example State Legislation to Support Electrification Strategies” in January 2019 as a resource for electricity providers, state legislators, regulators, and other stakeholders as they develop their electrification strategies and enable critical infrastructure investments.

The tools and resources in that document are consistent with the Transportation Electrification Accord, as well as with policies adopted by policymaker associations, including the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) and the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), to encourage state-level actions.

The example state legislation may be referenced as a tool for states either considering enabling legislation for the first time or considering updates to their existing laws. It was drafted with the intention of enabling each state to tailor the legislation according to its own needs and circumstances, especially where conflicting provisions already exist.
