IPMI Releases Industry-Wide Electric Vehicle Readiness Survey

March 8, 2023

IPMI releases landmark survey to capture critical benchmarks and data on industry readiness to prepare for electric vehicles and charging needs to support national initiatives.

Electric vehicles (EVs) and charging infrastructure are poised to transform the parking, transportation, and mobility industry. The launch of the NEVI program, along with complementary federal, state, and local funding, policies, and programs, represents a generational opportunity for the parking and mobility industry to play a pivotal role to plan, deploy, and maintain required charging infrastructure to advance the adoption of EVs and electrification across the nation.

IPMI released its inaugural landmark EV Readiness survey to capture critical benchmarks and data on the state of the industry’s readiness to prepare for electric vehicles and charging needs to support national initiatives.  Open to all industry professionals, this critical survey will close April 5.

Developed by the IPMI Board of Directors, its new EV Readiness Cohort along with the support of hundreds of IPMI expert volunteers, the 2023 IPMI Electric Vehicle Readiness Survey will capture insights and benchmarks on the current state of EV readiness, Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), and EV fleet deployment industry-wide, as well as anticipated demand and related impacts to the industry.

“The adoption of electric vehicles for both patrons and fleets in parking, transportation, and mobility represents a sea change in our industry,” said Shawn Conrad, CAE, CEO of the International Parking & Mobility Institute (IPMI). “The NEVI program, along with the multitude of federal, state, and local incentives, will help support this massive initiative nationwide towards smarter cities, greener infrastructure, and greater mobility options. The International Parking & Mobility Institute has launched this survey and several programs in the areas of electrification and EV readiness for our members and the industry at large. We look forward to advancing EV adoption throughout our membership to the benefit of our members, our communities, and the nation.”

Gary Means, CAPP, IPMI Board Chair shared his perspective on our role as an organization to shape the industry's guidelines on deploying additional EV capacity: "IPMI initiated the EV Readiness Survey to collect critical data to help our members assess their readiness to deploy charging capacity for patrons and the greater communities that we serve. We are dedicated to driving the industry forward to create greater mobility choices, including support for electric vehicles. Results will be used to develop research and resources that help professionals prepare for anticipated demand, as well as enhanced services for fleets.  We encourage you to respond and share the survey with your networks so we can maximize our impact to support electrification and greater sustainability programs and policies."

Supported by IPMI’s 2023 Exclusive EV Readiness Survey Sponsor, FLASH, IPMI will seek industry feedback through our partnerships and platforms, including the Global Parking Association Leaders, 19 affiliated State and Regional parking and mobility associations, and numerous industry partners like the CHARGE Coalition.

About the EV Readiness Cohort

The IPMI EV Readiness Cohort specializes in planning, research, and innovation industry-wide to create partnerships and resources that enable IPMI members to prepare for and accommodate anticipated needs and requirements to support EVs across all segments of the industry. The small expert working group develops targeted and impactful resources of benefit to IPMI members relative to the challenge and opportunities around electrification.

Following analysis and benchmarking based on survey data, the Cohort will develop a series of essential resources to guide industry electrification, including a new educational program sharing best practices and survey results.

Strategic Media Partner: Electric Vehicle Charging Summit



The Electric Vehicle Charging Summit & Expo is North America’s largest trade show for all things EV charging. The Summit provides educational sessions focused on financing, infrastructure, operability, and ROI for EV charging. The expansive Expo Hall showcases real solutions, cost savings, and technological advances to infrastructure for all commercial and government organizations. As more than $7.5 billion in federal subsidies begins to flow into U.S. electric vehicle charging infrastructure, and both consumer and commercial demand for electric vehicles skyrockets, EVCS is a must-attend event taking place at a turning-point moment for the industry.


Strategic Partner: CHARGE Coalition

Coalition Helping America Rebuild and Go Electric - CHARGE - is made up of transportation, industry, environmental, labor, health, equity, and civic organizations that support smart policy to electrify America’s transportation system. The coalition supports a set of principles for Congress and the new administration to ensure we implement smart zero-emission transportation policy.


Allied State and Regional Associations

IPMI is grateful for the ongoing support and outreach for our EV readiness efforts by each of our State and Regional Associations!  Each of these organizations are partnering with IPMI to expand our outreach and education efforts.
