The Press Release is as follows:
Today, the Administration, in collaboration with public and private sector partners, is announcing a set of actions and a new framework for cooperation to accelerate the deployment of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in order to increase the number of electric vehicles on the road. Expanding on progress to promote electric vehicle adoption, the actions announced today represent the next step in the Administration’s commitment to deploy electric vehicle charging infrastructure, foster advanced technologies, and make electric vehicles more affordable for all Americans.
These announcements include the Energy Department unlocking up to $4.5 billion in loan guarantees to support innovative electric vehicle charging facilities, and the Department of Transportation launching the process to identify zero emission and alternative fuel corridors, including for electric vehicle charging across the country. These actions and others from the Federal government will work in conjunction to achieve an ambitious set of Guiding Principles to Promote Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure, endorsed today by an unprecedented coalition forged between nearly 50 vehicles manufacturers, electric utilities, electric vehicle charging companies, states, and organizations.
