Our Work

Smart City Exchange


The EC helps facilitate city-to-city information sharing to advance the speed at which cities can facilitate the transition to electric mobility. In 2016, Columbus was awarded $40 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation and $10 million from Paul G. Allen Philanthropies, through the Smart City Challenge. The EC is supporting the EV consumer adoption program as an organizing, technical, and strategic advisor.

For the Mobility Innovation Challenge, the EC, Smart Cities Lab and the Texas Innovation Alliance are dedicated to providing 20 forward-thinking cities a laboratory to grapple collectively with the challenges of the transportation revolution.
