Fleet Electrification Goals:
Fleet electrification is an important part of CenterPoint Energy’s cleaner energy transition. Our corporate fleet goals include electrifying 100% of sedans and SUVs by 2030.
CenterPoint Energy is a trusted partner in eMobility, powering more than 200 million miles of EV driving every year.
Electric Vehicles in Houston
- CenterPoint Energy co-founded EVolve Houston in 2019 and invested $1 million to enable electric transportation solutions. EVolve Houston is a coalition of sustainability-minded civic, business and academic leaders who seek to accelerate cleaner transportation through electrification.
- Through EVolve Houston, fleet assessments have been completed for CenterPoint Energy, the City of Houston, Harris County and three Independent School Districts.
- EVolve Houston aligned with the White House to set an ambitious target and roadmap to achieve 50% of electric EV sale shares in the United States (and Houston) by 2030.
Clean Air Technologies (CAT) Program
The Clean Air Technologies (CAT) Program focuses on promoting the electrification of various technologies in the greater Houston area. The program supported the initial deployments of EV fast charging networks provided by several private companies. CenterPoint Energy maintains our place as a leader in the local business community by expanding the CAT Program’s efforts to include promoting Electric Transport Refrigeration Units and continuing research in the electrification of light-duty passenger and medium-heavy duty fleet vehicles.
EV-Point is a fast growing, employee-led affinity group designed to accelerate electric vehicle deployment among CenterPoint Energy employees. EV-Point’s mission is to provide a mutually supportive and positive environment in which members can learn about EVs, network with fellow EV enthusiasts and gain professional development through EV-Point awareness and leadership programs.
eMobility was formed to improve the economic vitality and air quality in our communities by amplifying the adoption of EVs. eMobility support will enable customer fleet electrifications, while helping customers meet carbon reduction goals and lower operations and maintenance fleet costs in the long term. eMobility is supporting METRO’s electrification of 20 public transportation buses, helping to reach their goal of transitioning their entire public transit fleet to zero-emission vehicles by 2030.
