About The Electrification Coalition

The Electrification Coalition (EC) is a national, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization committed to promoting policies and actions that facilitate the accelerated deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) on a mass scale. For more than ten years, the EC and its sister organization, Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE), have sought to reduce our nation’s dependence on oil – which is currently responsible for powering 92 percent of our transportation system.

The last several years have been exciting for the EC as we have created and contributed to some of the most innovative public-private partnerships in transportation electrification, including our work on behalf of the American Cities Climate Challenge, the award-winning Climate Mayors EV Purchasing Collaborative, the Smart City Challenge, and numerous other initiatives. The EC also supports a broad suite of policies and initiatives at the federal, state, and local levels contributing to the accelerated electrification of the transportation and mobility sector.
