Era of EV Incentives Over in Oregon, Industry Told

Oregon lobbyist shares of facts of political life in his state as it is likely to impact the electric vehicle industry.

Published: 07-Dec-2012

Oregon’s electric vehicle industry should bid farewell to the days of incentives — at least for now — and look to policymaking and discretionary spending to shape government support for the electric vehicle industry.

That was the gist of a talk lobbyist Daniel Bates gave this week in Portland to the electric vehicle industry group Drive Oregon.

Bates, the former director of government relations for the city of Portland, has been handling government relations for a number of electric vehicle companies since 2010 as a partner in the Oregon office of Thorn Run Partners.
