Energize Oregon Coalition Launch A Success

On November 7th, Drive Oregon and the Oregon Department of Transportation convened the inaugural meeting (http://driveoregon.us7.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=0ad2b36c81b1d8ac36d2e51a7&id=beda2d9902&e=1292aedb3d) of the Energize Oregon Coalition in downtown Portland, putting into motion critical collaboration that will ensure a strong market for plug-in electric vehicles in the state.  Over eighty representatives of industry firms, organizations, and government agencies attended the meeting, signaling widespread interest in this effort.  Several major automakers were also in attendance, including Honda, Nissan, Ford, and General Motors, further strengthening the Coalition.  A summary of the meeting and key next steps for the Coalition is available on our website (http://driveoregon.us7.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=0ad2b36c81b1d8ac36d2e51a7&id=91d2db5d42&e=1292aedb3d) .

This is particularly notable because foundation grants to a trade association like Drive Oregon – as opposed to a typical public charity – are very rare. It's a great vote of confidence in our work – and a tribute to the Trust's creativity - and will give us a solid base of support for this work.
