For the past several months, a core team of organizations including Tennessee State agencies, electric utilities, cities, universities, electric vehicle OEMs, and others have been working together on a shared vision, goals, and guiding principles for Drive Electric Tennessee. We are now beginning to develop a roadmap that will help achieve our vision and goals over the next 5-10 years, and invite you to participate in the roadmap development process. Your input is critical to the success of Drive Electric Tennessee as we form partnerships and plan projects, with many opportunities for you to get involved.
