NYCEDC aims to identify interest from, and opportunities to support, companies, organizations, truck fleet owners and operators, and other entities that are looking to use, install, and/or maintain fast-charging electric truck charging stations and infrastructure, with a specific focus on electric vehicle support equipment (EVSE) that serves light and medium duty commercial trucks and vehicles (Class 3-6 market) and that could potentially be interchangeably used with passenger vehicles.

This is an exciting opportunity to potentially leverage NYCEDC’s real estate portfolio and tenant base to build out critical electric charging infrastructure which the City of New York (the “City”) will need to realize the emissions reduction goals, as outlined by the recent FreightNYC plan. In addition to the two main levers to support the development of electric charging stations mentioned in the RFEI, NYCEDC is willing to engage with Respondents in a discussion about additional NYCEDC and City resources that might be needed to support the goals of this RFEI.

NYCEDC plans to select one or more Respondents on the basis of factors stated in the RFEI which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the Response, operational experience, knowledge of electric vehicle industry, demonstrated successful experience in performing projects and services similar to those encompassed in the RFEI, and, if applicable, project quality, financial sustainability and the proposed fee.

It is the policy of NYCEDC to comply with all Federal, State and City of New York laws and regulations which prohibit unlawful discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, marital status and other protected category and to take affirmative action in working with contracting parties to ensure certified Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) share in the economic opportunities generated by NYCEDC’s projects and initiatives. Please refer to the Equal Employment and Affirmative Compliance.
