Rural Reimagined: Building an Electric Vehicle Ecosystem and Green Economy for Transforming Lives in Economically Distressed Appalachia
The objective of the project is to develop, demonstrate, and deploy a replicable program for expanding clean and affordable electrified transportation to underserved communities through electric vehicle (EV) and EV infrastructure deployment, data analysis, education, and outreach that leverages real-world data and lessons learned collected from these communities over the course of the project. Developing an EV Ecosystem in rural Appalachia will include educational outreach, vehicle and infrastructure development, workforce training, data collection, and analysis.
