Georgia's Commitment to Electric Transportation
In early 2021, Southern Company joined 5 other energy companies to create the Electric Highway Coalition to collaborate on a network of DC fast chargers from the Atlantic Coast through the Midwest and South and into the Gulf and Central Plains regions. The coalition will provide drivers with effective, efficient, and convenient charging options to enable long-distance electric travel.
Electric Mobility and Innovation Alliance
In 2021, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp formed the Georgia Electric Mobility and Innovation Alliance (EMIA). Led by the Georgia Department of Economic Development, EMIA is a statewide alliance that consists of partners ranging from government, industries, electric utilities, non-profits, and other stakeholders.
They all share the common goal of growing the electric mobility ecosystem in the state and strengthening Georgia’s position in electric vehicle-related manufacturing and innovation. The EMIA has made recommendations to the Governor to accelerate electrification across Georgia.
