March 16, 2023 – Barbara Humpton, president and CEO of Siemens USA, has been chosen to provide a keynote address at this year’s SAFE Summit, which will address the challenges in achieving secure and reliable supply chains on the country’s path to widespread electrification. Representing a company at the forefront of the electrification transition, Humpton will address how building out a national EV supply chain and charging network will not only create jobs but will also strengthen U.S. competitiveness as we collectively transition to an electrified future.
Humpton will address the summit on March 28th at 4:40 pm, at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Conference Center in Washington, D.C. She will join esteemed U.S. and international government and business leaders, including White House Senior Advisor John Podesta, FedEx Executive Chairman Frederick W. Smith, Nissan Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta, and Panasonic North America CEO Megan Myungwon Lee.
With more than 100,000 charging stations deployed across 50 states, Siemens is making significant investments to support U.S. electric vehicle charging manufacturing and infrastructure. Earlier this month, the United States Postal Service (USPS) selected Siemens as one of its EV charging infrastructure providers for their fleet electrification efforts and the company recently announced a goal to manufacture 1 million EV chargers for the U.S. by 2025 while committing to electrify its own fleet of 10,000 vehicles by 2030. Siemens will play a major role in helping the nation meet the objectives laid out in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and is a partner as states work to deploy charging stations aligned with the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program.
Held on March 28-29, 2023, the SAFE Summit aims to seize the historical moment provided by the Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The two days of remarks, hosted interviews, panel discussions, and engagements will offer practical solutions to build out robust and reliable supply chains and support infrastructure for EVs and the broader energy transportation transition from minerals to market.
The summit will be held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, D.C. To register and for more summit information, go to SAFESummit.org.
