Driving Georgia's Future

Georgia is fast becoming a hub of investment and activity in electric mobility.  With a vibrant multi-modal transportation network that includes Atlanta-Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, the Port of Savannah, and an extensive road and rail network, the state is poised to be a leader in the adoption of electric mobility technologies for the benefit of the health and resilience of our communities. This inaugural meeting will focus on how the integration of electric mobility in our communities will change our state, the educational programs that we will need to support the growth, and the future of electric mobility in Georgia and beyond its borders.
