Waxman Strategies, the firm of former California Congressman Henry Waxman, has signed on to provide DC outreach for Electrify America.

The Reston, VA-based company, which is part of Volkswagen Group, is the largest operator of charging stations in the US.

On July 10, Electrify announced its “boost plan” to more than double its charging stations to 1,800-plus and over 10,000 individual chargers by 2025.

The boost plan expands Electrify’s commitment to invest more than $2B over the next decade to zero-emission vehicle infrastructure, education and access across the US.

Giovanni Palazzo, CEO of Electrify and former head of Volkswagen’s e-mobility unit, said the addition of the charging stations and the ability to service all models of EVs on the market will power his firm’s effort to advance the growth of the zero-emissions vehicle market.

Waxman Strategies has managing director Micheal Goo, a Congressional staffer to Waxman and New Jersey’s Frank Pallone, and environmental practice leader Carl Leighty overseeing the Electrify America business.
