Coalition for Green Capital Joins National EV Charging Initiative

WASHINGTON, DC– The Coalition for Green Capital (CGC) joined partners today in launching the National EV Charging Initiative, a coalition to spur construction of the nation’s electric-vehicle charging network. The coalition includes 24 national and regional organizations representing automakers, workers, utilities, suppliers, investors and public interest advocates.

“A strong national electric vehicle charging network is a critical component in supporting our investments in electric vehicles as well as our nation’s transition to clean energy,” said Jill Bunting, Deputy Director of the Coalition for Green Capital. “Investment in this network will not only support our climate goals but will also create good jobs, address racial inequities by expanding access to electric vehicles and strengthen public/private partnerships. We’re proud to stand with our partners today in launching the National EV Charging Initiative and look forward to supporting the coalition’s work.”

In a joint memorandum of understanding, CGC and coalition partners pledged to collaborate with all levels of government to build a national charging network as well as advocate to leverage funding and other forms of support from the public sector.
