Biden-Harris Administration Releases Electric Vehicle Charging Action Plan
This week, the Biden-Harris Administration released an Electric Vehicle Charging Action Plan that outlines steps federal agencies are taking to support developing and deploying a national network of electric vehicle chargers. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, passed earlier this year, allocated $7.5 billion for electric vehicle charging.
The legislation also establishes a joint office of the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Transportation (DOT) focused on building a convenient, reliable public charging network that builds public confidence in the viability of electric vehicles. The joint office will work with industry leaders, manufacturers, community members, and other stakeholders to ensure the charging system works for everyone.
According to this action plan, no later than February 11th, the Department of Transportation will publish guidance for States and cities to deploy EV charging. Additionally, the administration is soliciting additional Alternative Fuel Corridors designations, which will increase possible locations for government-funded electric vehicle charging stations.
