November 9, 2017: The State of California, in cooperation with the NASPO ValuePoint Cooperative Purchasing Program, is seeking input from electric vehicle dealers prior to releasing a solicitation for a nationwide electric vehicles contract. View the RFI.

EV Smart Fleets aims to develop an aggregate purchasing model for electric vehicles (EVs).  Aggregated purchasing is when one central organization coordinates customers to maximize their collective buying power. By developing  a new type of buying system that could lower costs and expand product availability for EVs, this project supports the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program and the work they do with nearly 100 local coalitions to decrease the use of petroleum in transportation.
