2022 Momentum Summit

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first annual DriveElectricTN Momentum Summit!

Our goal for the summit was to bring together passionate stakeholders who want to see Tennessee reach our initiative’s goal of 200,000 electric vehicles on the road by 2028. This year’s Momentum Summit was a fantastic opportunity for those interested in EVs as well as seeing the market grow in our state to learn, collaborate, and provide input to DET about the direction of the organization.

On behalf of our event planning team, we hope that you all enjoyed the DET Momentum Summit as an interactive workshop with a hint of conference. We wished for meaningful connections to be made among all of you and that you were able to learn more about the EV environment in Tennessee as well as contribute to the larger conversation about EV centric projects for the DET initiative.
