The Award Winners


Businesses, communities, and building developments around the Bay Area are honored for their efforts to integrate EV infrastructure, policies, programs, and education into their communities to catalyze the EV market. These clean transportation leaders are enabling the region to meet its target of 100,000 electric vehicles by 2020, which could save over $120 million a year in reduced fuel costs - improving the economy, community health and reducing climate impacts.


Their pioneering work has included providing employees access to over 50 plug-in EVs through a car-sharing program; installing numerous charging stations for employees, residents, or community members; incorporating and enforcing EV-friendly policies; and developing and disseminating educational materials for guidance on how to make communities EV-ready.
