Maryland Electric Vehicle Benefit-Cost Analysis Framework


The Public Service Commission of Maryland directed the PC44 Electric Vehicle Work Group to develop a consensus electric vehicle benefit-cost assessment (BCA) framework for the Commission's consideration. The EV Work Group was directed to examine the National Standard Practice Manual (NSPM) and the EmPOWER Maryland Evaluation, Verification, and Measurement Framework to help inform the BCA. On behalf of the Maryland Office of People’s Counsel (OPC) Synapse attended a series of EV Work Group meetings over the course of 2021 where it provided guidance and comments on draft BCA proposals. The leader of the PC44 EV Work Group submitted the group’s proposed EV BCA Framework to the Commission on December 1, 2021. Report - 9478 (ML# 238013)
