EV Power Pods | October 13, 2022
Harry Tenenbaum attended an EV Power Pods demonstration in Houston, a mobile charging solution that uses a propane/natural gas generator to power an EV charger.

Greentown Labs hosted a transportation-themed pitch day on October 13th, where Casey Brown presented on how Evolve's commercialization and infrastructure projects, consumer awareness campaigns, and equity programs help advance electric mobility across Houston. Casey also introduced the start-up organizations pitching that day. This was a fun-filled day, connecting with local start-up organizations focused on scaling transportation solutions across the U.S.

Evolve's eYouth Education Program | October 24, 2022
The Evolve team visited South Houston High School and Sam Rayburn High School. It was great to showcase an electric vehicle to the students and demonstrate how much fun it is to drive electric!
