This partnership between BWC, a national recognition program to support workplaces that have robust commuter benefits programs, and Forth, whose goal is to create electric vehicle (EV) transportation solutions to reduce pollution and address EV barriers, is a strong platform to help make EVs a primary mode of transportation nationwide.

Through this partnership, a series of informational webinars are being hosted to promote EVAL and help workplaces get the most out of program benefits, such as education, outreach and technical assistance for designing and deploying workplace charging systems. Webinars are tailored to specific regions throughout the U.S. and include opportunities to engage with experts and ask questions. The following webinars are provided free to anyone interested in EV charging across the nation.

"We are excited to collaborate with Forth to expand support for electric vehicles," said Julie Bond, Program Director for Best Workplaces for Commuters. "Supporting EV charging at workplaces aligns well with our program's goal of expanding access to greener commuting choices."

"About 60% of EV drivers need charging at work either due to a long commute or lack of charging at home. With an estimated 26 million EVs on U.S. roads by 2030, it is essential that we plan for that as a country," said Aleksandra Evert, Program Manager at Forth. "We need to eliminate barriers so Americans have access to charging and other EV-supportive technologies. EVAL and our partnership with Best Workplaces for Commuters is one big step toward addressing this goal."
