During the AltCar Expo in Santa Monica, CA (September 20-21), the Coast to Coast EMobility Connection (C2C) will present a world premiere: the first results of a comprehensive study comparing US and Dutch government policies supporting the introduction of electric vehicles. The study offers advice to US and Dutch governments, universities and industry to further promote the development of e-mobility into the next phase of EV adoption.
President and CEO of C2C partner Spijkstaal Elektro will be present on both days and available to discuss the latest industrial e-mobility solutions used by companies like KLM/Air France and Aalsmeer Flowers.
C2C will also launch its brand new website during the expo. The site is designed as a resource for state-of-the-art e-mobility developments in the Netherlands and the US West Coast. The website also offers a platform for partners to present their e-mobility activities. In addition, new organizations wishing to join can register through the website.
ABOUT THE COAST TO COAST E-MOBILITY CONNECTION
“The Coast to Coast E-Mobility Connection” (C2C) is a public-private partnership designed to promote knowledge and innovation exchange between Dutch and US governments, universities and companies; to strengthen bilateral relations between US and Dutch decision-makers; and to help position private organizations in relevant e-mobility markets.
In April 2013, C2C set up a dedicated Holland E-Mobility House, located within the Netherlands Consulate General in San Francisco, to organize seminars, trade missions, study tours and other programs to support the partnership’s aims. C2C communicates news related to developments in e-mobility in the US and the Netherlands through various channels.
