Eric Krasno Named Latest DriveH2 Ambassador
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#EIN–The DriveH2 campaign, a public service initiative by environmental nonprofit Energy Independence Now (EIN), has named multi-GRAMMY Award-winning singer, musician and songwriter/producer Eric Krasno as a DriveH2 ambassador. As the newest celebrity DriveH2 ambassador, Krasno will help spread EIN’s message of a planet-friendly, zero-emission, innovation-powered future.
EIN is dedicated to advancing hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) and renewable hydrogen infrastructure for transportation, renewable energy storage and deep decarbonization. The organization engages in comprehensive research, policy advocacy and public outreach to promote the widespread adoption of a diverse zero emissions portfolio.
As part of EIN’s education and public awareness efforts, it developed the DriveH2 Ambassador program where it invites celebrities and thought leaders to take a hydrogen fuel cell EV for a spin and share their experience with fans and followers.
Krasno, whose newest single “Be Your Man,” a collaboration with Otis McDonald, was released last week, is a long-time supporter of environmental causes.
“I have always been passionate about preserving the environment and doing my part in combatting climate change,” said Krasno. “In working with EIN and the DriveH2 initiative, I’ve learned how hydrogen vehicles are a key for the future health of our planet. I am honored to be part of this movement as it becomes a more and more important part of the process of healing the planet we love so dearly.”
“We’re honored to welcome Kraz to our DriveH2 Ambassador Program and to get him behind the wheel of a Toyota Mirai,” said Brian Goldstein, EIN’s Executive Director. “Like anyone who drives an FCEV, Kraz is experiencing fast, communal refueling, which is especially important in states like California, where so many people live in multi-family housing and may not have easy access to EV chargers or consistent parking spaces. By championing hydrogen fuel cell technology, we strive to create a transportation landscape that provides equitable access to sustainable mobility solutions – and we appreciate having a world-class musician such as Eric Krasno to help us spread that message.”
DriveH2 is a public service initiative by Energy Independence Now (EIN), an environmental nonprofit committed to educating the world about the benefits of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. The organization engages in comprehensive research, policy advocacy and public outreach to promote the widespread adoption of a diverse zero emissions portfolio.
