EVgo Executive Wows During Clean Tech Webinar

CleanTechnica’s Zach Shahan and Kyle Field sat down with Jonathan Levy, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at EVgo, to talk EV fast charging today, tomorrow, and in 10 years from now in the United States as the website continues its #Electrifying webinar series.

This lively discussion takes the viewer through the evolution of fast charging from the manufacturer side and how EV charging companies are working to expand infrastructure and stations throughout the country.  For almost an hour, the three experts banter about the state of EV charging today and interesting trends in the industry.

CleanTechnica strives to be the most indispensable website on the planet for cleantech news and commentary. They have been covering the cleantech industry obsessively since 2008 — before it was popular for mainstream media to dedicate blogs or subdomains to the topic.

Levy brings decades of experience as a problem solver in the public and private sectors, spanning policy, strategic, and operational roles ranging from drafting legislation and assessing policy risks to crisis management work. Coming from his previous role as Director of Policy and Strategy at Vision Ridge Partners, where he remains an advisor, Jonathan already has a deep knowledge of the EV charging industry as a whole and EVgo in particular. In his new role as Vice President of Strategic Initiatives at EVgo, Levy works hand-in-hand with the rest of the executive team in exploring new partnerships and business opportunities, improving execution, and ensuring EVgo’s continued thought leadership in a dynamic sector. Levy’s federal experience includes six years of service in the Obama Administration at the U.S. Department of Energy and the White House as well as prior service on Capitol Hill as policy advisor to then-Congressman Rahm Emanuel.
