These updated regional and state pages track progress on transportation electrification in six states in the Southeast: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The data presented on these pages reflects activity from January through December 2022.
SACE and its partner, Atlas Public Policy, provide this year-end data update as a supplement to our annual “Transportation Electrification in the Southeast” report that dives deep into the substantial momentum in the Southeast across electric vehicle (EV) market indicators, including economic and workforce development, EV sales and charging infrastructure deployment, and government and electric utility funding.
The need for transportation electrification is considerable. Transportation is the single largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States and transportation electrification can help significantly reduce carbon emissions. At the same time, there are opportunities to improve health outcomes, address environmental injustices, and stimulate jobs and economic development in the Southeast through the uptake of EVs.
Overall, the Southeast has seen significant growth over the past 12 months in EV sales, utility investment, government spending, charging deployment and manufacturing, and jobs. That said, the region still lags behind the national average across all indicators except manufacturing and jobs.
