2.1 Share best practices by participating in national and regional dialogues
Reason for action
These dialogues allow PEV work to follow best practices and avoid potential redundancy with the work of other groups. Examples include. Spotlight: Siting best practices have been compiled by several different organizations (including Advanced Energy, Oregon DOT, and Washington DOT) – instead of making a new report, DOTs can use the reports created by others. Spotlight: The West Coast Electric Highway network was the result of a multi-state collaboration among the public/private partnership offices at Oregon, Washington and California DOTs. Spotlight: This tool was the result of executive-level state DOT workshops, a pooled fund study involving eight different state DOTs, several local governments, and U.S. DOT.
Implementing the action
The DOT can now find support from other PEV stakeholders, share information, and collaborate on initiatives.
