Description and Detail

About The Electrification Coalition

The Electrification Coalition (EC) is a national, nonpartisan not-for-profit organization committed to promoting policies and actions that facilitate the accelerated deployment of electric vehicles (EVs) on a mass scale. For more than 10 years, the EC and its sister organization, Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE), have sought to reduce our nation’s dependence on oil – which is currently responsible for powering 92 percent of our transportation system.

2018 and 2019 have been an exciting year for the EC where we have created and contributed to some of the most innovative public-private partnerships in transportation electrification including our work on behalf of the American Cities Climate Challenge, the award-winning Climate Mayors EV Purchasing Collaborative, the Smart City Challenge and numerous other initiatives. The EC also leads and supports a broad suite of policies and initiatives at the federal, state, and local levels that are contributing to the accelerated electrification of the transportation and mobility sector.


The Electrification Coalition seeks a motivated team member to work in diverse roles through the American Cities Climate Challenge program. Activities will include supporting the EC’s program through interactions with cities in the areas of fleet electrification, EV infrastructure development, bus electrification, EV-ready building policy and consumer adoption initiatives. The EC has already fostered a substantial presence with its vehicle electrification leadership through the American Cities Climate Challenge program in more than a dozen cities across the U.S. The EC is working to facilitate the development and passage of high impact EV policies at the city level to advance the mass adoption of EVs.
