Maryland Zero Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Council Image of Electric Vehicles

About the Council

The Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Council (EVIC) was established by State legislation in 2011. In 2019, the membership, responsibilities, and reporting requirements of EVIC was expanded to include zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). To reflect the expanded responsibilities of the council, EVIC was renamed the Maryland Zero Emission Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Council (ZEEVIC). In 2020, the membership of ZEEVIC was expanded further and the Council’s termination date was extended to 2026.

The ZEEVIC is charged with the development of policies, recommendations, and incentives that increase awareness of ZEVs, support the ownership of ZEVs, and promote investment by the private sector in ZEVs; the development of recommendations for a statewide EV charging and hydrogen refueling infrastructure plan; and the development of other potential policies to promote and facilitate the successful integration of ZEVs into Maryland’s transportation network.
