Overview
Securing America’s Future Energy Foundation is effective in bringing different voices, particularly business and conservative leaders, in support of clean energy solutions. The Foundation focuses on reducing U.S. oil consumption to address the economic and national security dangers, including environmental implications caused by the nation’s dependence on petroleum. One of their leading strategies is establishing Electric Vehicles Deployment Communities in Orlando and Fort Collins, which includes business and costumers stakeholders. With this support, the Foundation will be able to strengthen federal, state, and city policies to achieve and go beyond the national administration goals for electric vehicles.

Grants to this Grantee
for the freight and goods delivery electrification project  
Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) works with business and former military leaders to improve America’s energy diversity and reduce its dependence on oil. With this grant, SAFE will develop a medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicle pilot project. SAFE will work with vehicle manufacturers, charging infrastructure providers, freight operators, and government to identify and overcome barriers to the procurement and use of electric vehicles. The project will aim to deeply understand and advance road-freight electrification at scale in the U.S.
for general operating support  
The goal of Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) is to reduce U.S. oil consumption to address the economic and national security dangers, including environmental implications, caused by the nation’s dependence on petroleum. SAFE is effective in bringing together different voices, particularly business and conservative leaders, in support of clean energy solutions for transport. SAFE’s main focus for the next year will be energy-related national security issues; working with business, military leaders, and consumers to maintain support for fuel economy standards; and electric vehicle policies and incentives, in key states and cities. One of these cities is Columbus — recent winner of the Smart Cities Challenge.
