Gage Zero to develop an EV fleet charging hub in Texas

The company will develop, own and operate the AllianceTexas EV charging hub as part of its network of sites planned throughout the U.S.

Gage Zero, an Austin-based fleet electrification solutions company that deploys and operates EV charging infrastructure, and Hillwood revealed plans to develop a Texas-based commercial EV charging facility, catering to trucks and last-mile fleets. The facility will be within AllianceTexas’ 27,000-acre mixed-use development. AllianceTexas is a global logistics hub consisting of the AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone (MIZ), BNSF Alliance Intermodal Facility, one of the largest intermodal hubs in the nation, Perot Field Fort Worth Alliance Airport (AFW) and has direct access to I-35W and State Highway 170.

“This initiative exemplifies our unwavering commitment to advancing sustainable infrastructure solutions that prioritize our customer’s needs,” Russell Laughlin, executive vice president of Hillwood, said. “Our vision is to enhance AllianceTexas’ forward-thinking infrastructure ecosystem, further empowering businesses to thrive while enabling them to take steps toward meeting tomorrow’s supply chain resiliency and reliability challenges.”

Gage Zero said its team, led by founder and CEO, Zeina El-Azzi, has $10 billion in combined experience deploying clean energy projects around the globe. The company will develop, own and operate the AllianceTexas EV charging hub as part of its network of sites planned throughout the U.S.

“Hillwood is exactly the type of collaborator Gage Zero wants to work with to fulfill our mission,” El-Azzi said. “Projects like this serve as a blueprint for how fleets across the country can partner with land and clean energy developers to reduce their carbon footprint and meet sustainability goals.”

Last year, Gage Zero announced a commitment of $300 million from ARC Financial to develop charging infrastructure sites for medium- and heavy-duty (M/HD) electric fleets because of the scale of impact these vehicles have on the environment, the company said. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), though they make up less than 5% of vehicles on the road in the United States today, M/HD fleets account for almost 25% of the transportation sector’s emissions with most of that impact on local communities where those trucks operate.
