Nonprofits Fuel EV Industry Clean Fleet Report

Aid comes from governmental and non-governmental entities

The electric vehicle (EV) industry is on the verge of its biggest sales spike thanks to international legislation and nonprofits stepping up support efforts. These cars are key to defining a net zero world.

The accessibility of electric vehicles is still not ideal due to high prices and limited access to charging stations. Fortunately, government and non-government initiatives are underway to mitigate these imperfections.

The Current State of Electric Vehicles – More Work Needs to Be Done

More US EV support to come

Some may question the need for non-profit involvement in the electric vehicle industry since companies are already manufacturing these cars for commercial purposes. More 6.8 million electric vehicles have been sold in the world in 2021, and this number is expected to increase.

The US Inflation Reduction Act passed in August 2022 contains several points regarding electric vehicles, including:

  • Tax credits: Until 2032, buyers can benefit from a tax credit of $7,500 on a list of approved electric vehicles made in the United States. These are capped at 200,000 vehicles per manufacturer. Used cars, commercial electric vehicles and charging station equipment are also officially eligible for the credit.
  • USPS Changes: The United States Postal Service will receive billions of dollars in funding to electrify its fleet and add charging infrastructure.
  • Training programs: These achievements cannot happen if more workers are not trained in how to create EVs, so broader education for environmental jobs, including EV manufacturing, will be put in place.

There is still work to be done, such as reconciling the negative impacts of EV battery manufacturing and create more equity in the market. This objective will be achieved with the help of non-profit organisations, mainly when investors look beyond profit only.

Here are three nonprofits that power the electric vehicle industry.

1. Electric for all

Electric for All gives buyers and owners valuable tools to start and continue their low-emission journeys by providing much-needed education about electric vehicles. Simple tutorials and charging station locators provide all the information you need in one place.

His most significant campaign, Myths Busting Myths, features cryptids and creatures such as unicorns and Martians to help dispel misinformation and dispel hesitation about switching to electric vehicles. The information standardization mission is crucial for widespread adoption.

2. Council of electric vehicles

The Electric Vehicle Council focuses on the creation of cooperatives, research and training to facilitate the installation of charging stations and the deployment of electric vehicles.

He researched charging station optimization and discovered a severe geographic divide in EV distribution – 15 states make up 81.7% of EV registrations at national scale. As sales increase dramatically with new legislation, the country will need to install at least 2.78 million charging stations to meet demand by 2030.

[Ed. note: The Council is part of the Fuels Institute, an educational non-profit funded primarily by the petroleum industry and Walmart and features a board of directors that includes auto companies, oil company and retail representatives.]

3. Coalition for Electrification

Transportation consumes 66% of US consumption 20% of world crude oil and the use of oil, which poses a threat to the atmosphere and public health. The Coalition for Electrification hopes to perpetuate the idea of ​​electric mobility, reminding everyone that the infrastructure to support this widespread movement is already in place.

He focuses on policy development at the federal, state, and local levels. The Electrification Coalition Business Council and the Electric Freight Consortium provide collaborative opportunities for large entities to raise resources and mobilize to advance the municipal fleet.

Its numerous EV deployment programs provide training and analysis support to create a level playing field.

[Ed. note: This environmental nonprofit was founded by an auto company executive, an energy company executive and a transportation company executive with the goal of promoting the transition from fossil fuels to electric vehicles. It is primarily funded primarily from foundation grants.]

Creating a better future with electric vehicles

Cars dependent on fossil fuels will eventually become obsolete as we move towards a greener future. The composition of the atmosphere has been irrevocably affected by diesel and gasoline emissions, and we cannot hope to repair all the damage. However, we can change humanity’s view of personal and public electric vehicles to avoid future environmental ramifications.
