RevUp Blaine is an initiative hosted by the Sun Valley Institute’s Energy Program. The program, which seeks to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles through education and limited-time discounts, is supported by funding from the Idaho National Laboratory contractor Battelle Energy Alliance. The Battelle Energy Alliance gives grants to support regional efforts in technology-based economic development.
