The Denver Electric Vehicle Action Plan includes a comprehensive series of projects to make Denver a great place to own and drive an EV. Here is a snapshot of some of our key projects.

City-Owned Charging Stations

Denver operates publicly available EV charging stations across the city and is in the process of adding more. See our map of city-operated charging stations.

Electric Car Share

In an ongoing partnership with Colorado Carshare, Denver Housing Authority, and the Urban Land Conservancy, the City has funded 7 new electric carshare vehicles and 6 EV charging stations to improve mobility in under-resourced communities throughout the city.

Income-qualified residents can sign up for discounted memberships by visiting carshare.org. The new carshare vehicle locations are as follows: 

  • 2855 Tremont St, Denver Motor Vehicles Building, Five Points/Whittier Neighborhoods
  • 330 24th Ave, Denver Housing Authority, Five Points Neighborhood 
  • 10th and Decatur, Denver Housing Authority, Sun Valley Neighborhood (2 EVs at this location)

  • 2004 Chestnut Place, City lot, Union Station/Five Points Neighborhoods 
  • 1600 N Downing St, Urban Land Conservancy, City Park West Neighborhood 

Check out the interactive story map below to explore each of the stations with pictures and stories from residents.

Electric Car Share Story Map

Electrifying Ride Sharing

We're partnering with ride-hailing companies and charging provider EVgo to encourage people to choose EVs for shared mobility by bringing six fast charging stations to Denver. The stations are located at 900 E 11th Ave and 942 S Monaco Pkwy. 

City Fleet Electrification

In July 2020, the City finished installing 28 new fleet charging stations to help reach its goal of 200 fleet EVs by the end of 2020. We are on our way to procuring the final vehicles to meet that goal.

EVs in Building Code

In 2019, the City updated its new construction and alterations building code to ensure that new buildings in Denver will have an adequate number of parking spaces that are ready for the growth of EVs.

Community-based Needs Assessment

In early 2021, CASR completed a Community Based Needs Assessment focused on mobility challenges in Denver's Montbello neighborhood.

Xcel Energy Transportation Electrification Plan

Through the end of 2020, we engaged with regional stakeholders and participated in the Public Utility Commission process to advance a transportation electrification plan for Xcel Energy. The utility’s plan was approved and will bring more investment to electric mobility in Denver and Colorado.
