2.6 Analyze and report on public value of DOT work on PEVs in state or region
Reason for action
Leadership may want in-depth description of the benefits of getting involved with PEVs and what the DOT can do. Alternatively, the DOT may be mandated to create a full study by an executive order or legislation. This action can be conducted in conjunction with a PEV action plan for the state. Spotlight: Although not a state DOT, FHWA has commissioned a comprehensive study  that examines the public value of PEVs and their implications for the mission of the FHWA.
Implementing the action
The study can enable more DOT work on PEVs and provide a firm, public justification for why this work is being conducted.
