Kandee Bahr Worley - Division Chief, Planning NV2X, Nevada Department of Transportation. In this role, she is driving the implementation of emerging and sustainable transportation programs, focusing on expanding alternative fuels, including electric vehicle infrastructure, that will accelerate EV adoption. Her work with the Nevada Governor's Office of Energy has focused on expanding electric charging infrastructure in Nevada's Alternative Fuel Corridors, using $3.5 million from the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust. Through this opportunity, partnerships were developed between emerging transportation services and sustainable transportation to create the necessary infrastructure for the State of Nevada, resulting in the Federal Highway Association's designation of the first completed corridor in the west, the I-15. She is also a Co-Chair of the RevWest Committee, which assists eight western states - Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by the governors of these states to provide a framework for EV corridors. The goal is to provide the states with support by implementing activities such as enhancing EV adoption and coordinating EV charging stations throughout the west. Bahr Worley is charged with implementing the necessary state plan for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This plan will address the earmark of $38 million in funds allocated to Nevada to develop an electric vehicle charging infrastructure statewide over the next five years.
