GO Electric Vehicle INdiana (GOEVIN) is a collaborative, statewide initiative dedicated to advancing the adoption of electric vehicles across the state. The GOEVIN Team is comprised of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), the Indiana Utility Group, and Drive Clean Indiana. GOEVIN aims to raise consumer awareness of electric vehicles (EV) by providing unbiased, educational information on the benefits of driving EVs in the Hoosier State.
The Indiana Volkswagen Mitigation Settlement, administered by IDEM, allocated $6.15 million to improve Indiana’s statewide EV charging network. To distribute this funding, IDEM administered a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit EV charging deployment applications from the public and private sectors. The Indiana Utility Group, comprised of 8 Indiana utilities, was successfully awarded a contract to develop Indiana’s fast-charging corridors. As part of the GOEVIN initiative, the Indiana Utility Group will deploy 61 Direct Current Fast Chargers (DCFC) along Indiana’s major highway routes. The GOEVIN DCFC chargers will be publicly available and located no more than one mile from highway exits.
To support Indiana’s developing EV charging network, IDEM administered an additional RFP to solicit applications from organizations to provide electric vehicle education, outreach, and marketing across the state. Drive Clean Indiana, Indiana’s Department of Energy Clean Cities Coalition, was awarded a contract to provide education, outreach and marketing to support Indiana’s electric vehicle owners, charging station operators, EV manufacturers and electric utility providers.
GOEVIN is developing effective and efficient electric vehicle infrastructure while establishing a collaborative EV ecosystem in order to raise awareness, provide education and support the Hoosier state’s transition toward electrified transportation options.
