Jim Burness, CEO, National Charging
Jim Burness founded National Car Charging (NCC) in 2011 with the belief that business can thrive while doing good for the planet. Ten years later, NCC and its sister company, Aloha Charge, are collectively the leading reseller and installer of electric vehicle infrastructure in the country and Jim is considered one of the nation’s top EV and charging experts. With previous careers in both the automotive industry and the renewable energy sector, Jim launched NCC to facilitate the build out of the nation’s EV charging infrastructure in a wide variety of key channels including retail, hospitality, municipal facilities, and multi-family dwellings. Today, NCC manages 7000+ ports nationwide across 800+ customers with installations in 47 states. Based in Denver, Colorado, Jim is actively involved in Colorado’s local sustainability community with Colorado Electric Vehicle Coalition, Colorado’s Solar Energy Industries Association and Clean Energy Action. He’s also worked extremely closely with local utilities in both Colorado and Hawai’i, and is passionately involved with the City and County of Denver as well as with the state legislature as sustainability legislation continues to evolve. Jim also currently lends his expertise to the EV Council as part of the NACS Fuels Institute. A graduate of The Colorado College and the University of Denver, he’s previously held positions at J.D. Power, American Honda, and Microsoft’s CarPoint. Jim and his wife purchased their first electric car in 2012, and now they both drive completely fossil fuel free.
