The U.S. Department of Transportation, U.S. Department of Energy, and the White House had recently hosted FreeWire Technologies and other major electric vehicles (EV) and charging equipment companies for Charging Forward: a Two-Day Electric Vehicle (EV) Symposium at the U.S. Department of Transportation Headquarters.
The two-day event showcased the latest in EV charging technology with focused discussions on accelerating an equitable electrified future.
“The global movement towards electrified transportation is accelerating. We must continue to make EV charging faster, more convenient, and more affordable than ever without sacrificing performance,” said FreeWire CEO and Founder Arcady Sosinov.
“As the public and private sectors continue to set ambitious and necessary electrification goals, FreeWire and our technology stand ready to help achieve these objectives with the urgency and innovation they demand,” continued Sosinov. “We’re tremendously thankful to the Biden Administration and our government partners for appreciating the solution we bring to bear, and we will continue to work towards building a national charging network that is user friendly, accessible, reliable, and equitable.”
FreeWire Technologies is investing and expanding U.S. operations, driven by policies enacted in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law last November.
The Bay Area company recently launched its new Global Headquarters, R&D, and Manufacturing Facility in Newark, CA, and will focus on manufacturing and scaling FreeWire’s Buy America-compliant battery-integrated EV charging equipment as well as research and development to support the company’s robust product roadmap.
FreeWire’s battery-integrated EV charging technology fills an important gap in the market given its Boost Charger’s ease of deployment and operation, unlocking new opportunities to provide ultrafast EV charging in both rural and urban communities.
The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation made several announcements in coordination with the symposium, including the release of further guidance on the rollout of the National Electric Vehicle Formula Program created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
FreeWire continues to disrupt the EV charging market with its Boost Charger, recently showcased as a finalist in Fast Company’s 2022 World-Changing Ideas Awards’ Transportation Category.
FreeWire continues to expand its deployment pipeline in states across the country and is rapidly growing its team to help its customers and our partners in state government build out a national charging network under this new federal investment.
