What is the Energize Oregon Coalition?
The Coalition will serve as an initial point of contact for electric vehicle efforts in Oregon. It will act as a forum for sharing information and best practices, and as a coordinating body for the diverse independent projects related to electric vehicles around the state. The highest value of this new collaborative group is to identify important projects and tasks that are best accomplished together -- and to provide the organization, focus, and resources to ensure they are quickly accomplished.
Drive Oregon and the Oregon Department of Transportation will serve as the organizers of the Coalition, with support from the Governor's Office. To learn more about the history of the coalition, click here.
The Coalition will identify a small number of specific, focused areas of work and will form task forces to focus on each of them. Priorities will be set in close consultation with Coalition members, based in part on conversations at this launch meeting.
Who Should Participate?
The Coalition welcomes all stakeholders interested in strengthening Oregon’s electric vehicle market, including vehicle makers, utilities, infrastructure providers, elected and appointed officials, government agencies, environmental and community advocates, and others. Participants from outside Oregon are also welcome. You do not need to be an official member of the Coalition to attend this initial meeting.
