28 companies in the EV industry, including Rivian, Tesla, and Lucid have joined forces to create ZETA (Zero Emission Transportation Association), an organization with the goal to push for 100% electric vehicle sales by 2030.


The full list of companies includes:
  • ABB
  • Albemarle Corporation
  • Arrival
  • ChargePoint
  • ConEdison
  • Copper Development Association, Inc.
  • Duke Energy
  • Edison International
  • Enel X
  • EVBox
  • EVgo
  • Ioneer
  • Li-Cycle
  • Lordstown Motors
  • Lucid Motors
  • Piedmont Lithium
  • PG&E Corporation
  • Proterra
  • Redwood Materials
  • Rivian
  • Siemens
  • Southern Company
  • SRP
  • Tesla
  • Vistra
  • Volta
  • Uber
  • WAVE
Some of ZETA's goals include:

1. Outcome-driven consumer EV incentives. Point-of-sale consumer incentives drive adoption, provide cost reductions, and achieve real results in pushing transportation electrification. In addition, incentivizing early retirements while encouraging EV adoption will speed the transition and meet the urgency of the moment.

2. Emissions/performance standards enabling full electrification by 2030. Emission targets are a key piece of protecting public health and sending the correct market signals to support and accelerate the transition to zero-emission transportation.

3. Infrastructure investments. Strong federal charging infrastructure investments will drive the electric transportation transition and ensure that the United States is leading the way in a clean recovery where everyone is better off.

4. Domestic manufacturing. We should not only accelerate US transportation electrification but also work to ensure that we secure domestic economic growth and leadership in EV manufacturing. Federal policies must encourage job creation and economic activity across the entire EV supply chain and lifecycle, from critical materials to vehicles.

5. Federal leadership and cooperation with sub-national entities. Federal support should invest in research and development, provide an aligned vision for electrification, and ensure local leaders are empowered with the expertise and resources to support full vehicle electrification.

Interesting that a good number of the companies are electric utilities.
Makes sense since they have a vested interest in EVs doing. Maybe they can finally break this stalemate between government and industry to fast track EV infrastructure development.
