EValuate is a unique approach to state-based policy analysis developed by Atlas Public Policy in coordination with state government agencies. The tools provide a large, comprehensive relational database to inform program development and evaluation. This data-driven approach to policymaking empowers agencies with decision-relevant information quickly and helps them tell compelling stories to their audiences.

EValuateNY demonstrates the value of using data to gain insights into the effectiveness of public policies and activities. Working with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), Atlas uses EValuateNY to better understand the rapidly evolving electric vehicle market throughout New York.
EValuateNY is a unique approach to policy analysis, using readily available software, Microsoft Power BI and Excel. The tool assembles several categories of information related to the electric vehicle market and equips users with the ability to gain insights and create compelling visuals quickly. The tool is also designed to be easily updateable, so its value is growing over time.
In 2016, Atlas worked with NYSERDA to promote the value of EValuateNY through a blog series on The Energy Collective.
Atlas used EValuateCT as the foundation of the Transportation Electrification Toolkit, a product to help Connecticut municipalities develop strategies to encourage transportation electrification through the pairing of electric vehicles and residential solar photovoltaic systems and electric shared-use mobility solutions. The toolkit consists of summaries of each transportation electrification concept, a case study of the concept from outside Connecticut, and potential approaches to deploy the concept for policymakers. The toolkit also consists of a resource library and interactive data dashboards that provide quick access to relevant information on transportation electrification in Connecticut.
