Plan will deliver more sustainable transportation through equitable EV investments
DALLAS, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE: J) helped the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) develop the state's electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure deployment plan.
The plan, which Jacobs will also help implement, will make NDOT eligible to receive federal funding for projects to enhance Nevada's EV charging infrastructure and networks, transforming the state's alternative fuel landscape.
Jacobs and its analytics subsidiary, StreetLight, used the company's big-data-powered software solutions to find optimal locations for charging infrastructure and will continue to use these EV analytics to support the deployment plan and funding requests. The team is also overlaying demographics to support NDOT's public outreach and stakeholder engagement, promoting equitable distribution of funds, meeting current Justice40 requirements and fulfilling the needs of Nevada and its national network.
"Our goal was to develop a collaborative, informed and flexible plan to help the state of Nevada deliver more sustainable transportation options to its citizens, and we have accomplished this initial phase," said Jacobs People & Places Solutions Americas Senior Vice President and General Manager Ron Williams. "Through our market-leading technical expertise and innovative software solutions, we provided NDOT insights to effectively plan and take advantage of historic funding opportunities at a time when sustainable and socially conscious infrastructure solutions are more important than ever."
"Jacobs has embraced the goals and vision that the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) had for the development of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Plan," said NDOT Division Chief of NV2X Planning Kandee Bahr Worley. "In addition to the ability to incorporate StreetLight's technology, which combines data from mobile phones, connected vehicles, IoT sensors, and geospatial databases, Jacobs was able to provide a unique opportunity to identify Nevada's needs. Planning and investment in infrastructure will be addressed using a more modern, informed data analytical approach. As a result of this process, we can build a resilient network as well as plan for future needs and ensure equitable access."
The federal Joint Office of Energy and Transportation directed state governments to develop and submit their EV infrastructure deployment plans by August 1, 2022 to be eligible to receive federal funding through the IIJA, and the Jacobs team helped Nevada meet that ambitious deadline.
