With construction of a Tesla factory outside Austin underway, Texas is guaranteed a central place in the transition to electric transportation. But it turns out there are already 7,000 Texans working in electric transportation-related business, and more than 400,000 workers and 5,000 Texas companies are in “adjacent” industries and occupations that stand to grow as transportation in the United States goes electric. 

Drawing on the new report, “Electric Transportation Supply Chain in Texas,” prepared by BW Research Partnership for the Texas Advanced Energy Business Alliance, this webinar, presented by TAEBA and AEE, looked at the opportunities in Texas and other states to enter the auto, truck, and bus industry as it converts from gasoline and diesel to electric power.
