The International Code Council released a new educational resource on electric vehicle charging infrastructure and building codes: Electric Vehicles and Building Codes: A Strategy for Greenhouse Gas Reductions. This is the first in a series of resources set to be published with the aim of supporting communities in achieving greenhouse gas reduction goals in a safe and efficient manner. The framework presents a carefully curated selection of solutions already implemented by jurisdictions that have chosen to enact policies aimed at supporting increased electric vehicle deployment.

The International Code Council, the world’s largest developer of model building codes and standards, announced the publication of a new educational resource on electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and building codes titled Electric Vehicles and Building Codes: A Strategy for Greenhouse Gas Reductions. This is the first in a series of resources set to be published with the aim of supporting communities in achieving greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals in a safe and efficient manner.

The framework presents solutions already implemented by jurisdictions that have chosen to enact policies aimed at supporting increased EV deployment. The model language presented in the resource is intended to provide communities with approaches that can reflect local needs and enables the policies and guidelines they set to be directly integrated into the International Codes (I-Codes) family of building safety solutions.
