ENGIE Insight solutions will help Electrify America’s $2 billion investment to advance Zero Emissions Vehicle adoption
Spokane, WA — January 17, 2019 — ENGIE Insight, a leading energy and sustainability management company, has been selected by Electrify America to provide utility expense, data management and rate monitoring and optimization solutions. On a mission to be a catalyst for promoting Zero-Emission Vehicle (ZEV) adoption by offering transformative, customer-centric infrastructure and energy management solutions, Electrify America is investing $2 billion over a 10-year period in ZEV infrastructure, education/outreach, and access/exposure, representing the largest commitment of its kind to date in the U.S.
The Center for American Progress reports that there are an estimated 800,000 electric vehicles (EVs) on the road now in the U.S., supported by approximately 18,000 charging stations, yet the U.S. still trails other countries in terms of adoption.
