Electrifying Transportation: A Policy Leadership Series Event with Cathy Zoi
A conversation with former EVgo CEO and Director Cathy Zoi on the ways to electrify the transportation sector.
As the recently retired CEO of EVgo, Cathy Zoi has an incredible set of insights about U.S. efforts to electrify our transportation sector. EVgo is among the nation’s largest fast-charging network for electric vehicles serving 140 million Americans living within 10 miles of an EVgo charger. Prior to her time at EVgo, Zoi created several clean energy companies and served as an Assistant Secretary and Acting Under Secretary at the Department of Energy during the Obama Administration.
On Wednesday, November 29, Resources for the Future hosted a conversation with Zoi to discuss her reflections over the course of her impressive career in clean energy and public policy, her hopes and expectations for the future, and lessons learned for environmental and energy leaders on what is needed to get to a net-zero reality.
