Our Reports

With a rapidly evolving market environment, the Southeast can seize the opportunity to increase EVs’ share of vehicles on the road. To guide this growth, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy develops reports to examine state policy, as well as regulatory, economic development, investment activity, and opportunities to improve public health, meet climate change goals, and spur economic growth across the Southeast.

ELECTRIFICATION OF TRANSPORTATION IN THE SOUTHEAST: 
STATE OF TECHNOLOGY DEPLOYMENT & INVESTMENT IN MANUFACTURING

Transportation electrification is taking hold in the United States across all vehicle types, including consumer vehicles, fleets, electric buses, and trucks. Consumer electric vehicle (EV) sales vary widely by state and region, and consistently most substantial in markets with favorable policies and engaged electric utilities. To explore how Southeast states stack up against each other and the nation, Atlas Public Policy and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) have collaborated on a brief, “Transportation Electrification in the Southeast,” which provides a snapshot of the Southeast’s EV market. The brief examines state-by-state policy, regulatory, economic development, and investment activity across Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
 
RETAINED TRANSPORTATION FUEL SPENDING IN THE SOUTHEAST: 
ELECTRIC VS INTERNAL COMBUSTION VEHICLES

“Retained Transportation Fuel Spending in the Southeast: Electric vs. Internal Combustion Vehicles,” developed by the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) demonstrates that electrifying transportation could provide an economic boon for Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North and South Carolina, and Tennessee. SACE’s analysis highlights the amount consumers spend fueling gas and diesel transportation, how much of that transportation spending remains in each Southeastern state, and what the economic effects would be if all on-road gas and diesel-powered cars, trucks, and buses are replaced with vehicles that drive entirely on electricity.
 

 
ELECTRIFICATION OF TRANSPORTATION IN NORTH CAROLINA: 
A DEEP DIVE INTO TRAVEL PATTERNS & STATISTICS ACROSS THE EV SECTOR 
North Carolina Brief.png
This brief produced in collaboration with the SACE and Atlas Public Policy, follows the recent "Transportation Electrification in the Southeast" brief, which examined state policy and regulatory, economic development, and investment activity across the Southeast. The North Carolina-specific brief provides a snapshot of the state’s EV market, transportation patterns, policy environment, and opportunities to improve public health, meet climate change goals, and spur economic growth.
 
ELECTRIFICATION OF TRANSPORTATION IN FLORIDA: 
A DEEP DIVE INTO TRAVEL PATTERNS & STATISTICS ACROSS THE EV SECTOR 
FL EV Brief
This brief produced in collaboration with the SACE and Atlas Public Policy, follows the recent "Transportation Electrification in the Southeast" brief, which examined state policy and regulatory, economic development, and investment activity across the Southeast. The Florida-specific brief explores how Florida stacks up against other Southeastern states and the nation. It shows there are immediate and long-range opportunities for policymakers and regulators to position Florida to be a national electric transportation leader.
