EV Trucks & The Inflation Reduction Act – Neha Palmer, TeraWatt Infrastructure

“I think what’s really interesting and intriguing to me is the collaboration from the DOT and the DOE. there certainly is an overlap when you think about electrification, it’s a transportation question, but it’s also an energy question and both of those things have to be really coordinated to have success here…. They have to be developed in tandem and coordinated is something that really hasn’t been, on their radar before.” Neha Palmer on Electric Ladies Podcast

With the new Inflation Reduction Act signed into law – on top of the Infrastructure Bill a few months ago – the  government’s investments in electric vehicles and the charging to support them has been supercharged.  That includes those medium and heavy duty trucks that transport the goods we buy to stores near us, and the delivery trucks that bring our stuff to our doorsteps, and even buses.  These vehicles have unique needs because they run nearly or literally 24/7. How will this work?

Listen to Neha Palmer, CEO and cofounder of TeraWatt Infrastructure explain it to host Joan Michelson on Electric Ladies podcast. This is a rebroadcast from last year, so we do not mention the IRA specifically.

You’ll hear:

“I think that people should feel comfortable being scared….You’ve got to leave before you’re ready to leave. Embrace challenge and go before you’re a hundred percent confident about that next step. It will allow I think, an acceleration of your career, but also your ability to make impact.” Neha Palmer on Electric Ladies podcast
