EEI Celebrates 1 Million Electric Vehicles on U.S. Roads

The Edison Electric Institute (EEI) recently hosted an event that brought together automakers, electric company leaders, infrastructure providers, environmental organizations, customers, policymakers, and others to mark the milestone of 1 million electric vehicles (EVs) now on U.S. roads and to discuss what’s ahead for electric transportation at The Newseum in Washington, D.C. About 20 speakers from all parts of the EV ecosystem provided remarks throughout the event. Discussion topics included the electric company role; how automakers are moving the EV market forward; transit, technology, and transportation infrastructure; the role of policymakers, regulators, and environmental groups; fleet electrification; and industry initiatives to support EV deployment.

Electric transportation is a win-win. It meets customer needs, provides environmental benefits, and supports America’s energy security.
