Description and Detail
The Electrification Coalition is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit group of business leaders committed to promoting policies and actions that facilitate the deployment of electric vehicles on a mass scale.

The Electrification Coalition works to end the oil dependence which threatens the nation’s economic, environmental and national security by working towards the long-term solution of electrification of transportation.
The Electrification Coalition (EC) works in a partnership with Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE). SAFE unites prominent military and business leaders to develop and advocate for policies that improve America’s energy security by significantly curtailing our dependence on oil and promoting responsible use of our domestic energy sources.
