AECOM to Deploy Statewide EV Charging in Arizona

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Multimodal Planning Division has selected AECOM to develop a plan for the statewide deployment of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.

This initiative will create alternative fuel corridors across Arizona to reduce ‘range anxiety’ and encourage more people to purchase an EV as an alternative to petrol (gasoline) or diesel-powered vehicles.

The development of an EV infrastructure deployment plan will also provide a resource to the public, with the goal of reducing range anxiety and encouraging vehicle purchasers to consider EVs
Jennifer Aument, Chief Executive of AECOM’s global transportation business said:

“There is an immense opportunity to transform how mobility is addressed within our communities. As a leader in emerging electrification technologies, we’re intimately familiar with National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) guidance and have a deep bench of capabilities to support our clients as they navigate the transportation-energy nexus. We look forward to partnering with ADOT to deliver a data-driven, strategic plan for the siting of EV chargers and assisting the state in receiving significant benefits from federal funding sources.”

In addition to delivering an EV infrastructure deployment plan, AECOM will engage stakeholders and communicate with the public to evaluate EV charging demand in Arizona. It will also undertake a grid capacity assessment and will provide guidance for future EV charging infrastructure plans, including cost analysis and federal funding compliance.

Travis Boone, Chief Executive of AECOM’s US West region said:

“Transportation electrification is key to improving environmental and public health while bolstering transit mobility, parity, and sustainability. Our team of experts, who reflect nationwide best practices and local experience, are thrilled to support Arizona’s deployment of a convenient, affordable, reliable, and equitable EV network in this capacity. In line with our Sustainable Legacies strategy, we’re proud to work with clients such as ADOT to help them achieve their electrification goals and are excited to partner with the Multimodal Planning Division to execute a successful and expedited EV infrastructure deployment plan.”

AECOM says this project falls under its Sustainable Legacies strategy.
