In November of 2017, the Alliance for Transportation Electrification (ATE) was formed. The alliance is made up of utilities, international affiliates, automotive firms, electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure firms, and engineering/consulting firms. This coalition advocates for the rapid adoption of electric transportation through educating and promoting its benefits. The Alliance hopes for effective stakeholder collaboration and mutually beneficial industry growth.
Although the Alliance is not the first coalition founded in support of EV adoption, it is poised to be the most significant due to the broad member representation and the targeted focus on local and state policy to drive adoption.
The Alliance’s desire for utility ownership/facilitation of EV infrastructure deployment through recoverable rates could be perceived as a threat to the private EV supply equipment companies (e.g., ChargePoint) because utilities could deploy infrastructure at low costs.
