Media Advisory: Electrification Coalition to Share Financial Feasibility Analysis of U.S. Federal Vehicle Fleet Electrification

WASHINGTON – The Electrification Coalition will present a report providing new analysis of the costs and emissions reductions associated with rapid electrification of vehicles in the U.S. federal fleets.

The analysis, conducted by Atlas Public Policy, reveals substantial near-term cost savings and emissions reductions that would result from the federal fleets’ adoption of electric light-duty vehicles and electric buses. By 2025, up to 40 percent of light-duty vehicles and buses owned by federal agencies could be replaced with EVs at a lower total cost of ownership than comparable gas and diesel vehicles. By 2030, this amount increases to 97 percent.

This webinar is open to the public and members of the media.

Speakers:

  • The Honorable Marcy Kaptur, Congresswoman from Ohio, Chair of the House Auto Caucus
  • Ben Prochazka, Executive Director, Electrification Coalition
  • Nick Nigro, Founder, Atlas Public Policy
  • James Di Filippo, Senior Policy Analyst, Atlas Public Policy
  • Moderator: Katherine Stainken, Senior Policy Director, Electrification Coalition

When: 10:30 a.m. ET, Wednesday, Aug. 18
