A modernized and interagency approach to support the deployment of zero-emission, convenient, accessible, equitable transportation infrastructure
The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation was created through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) to facilitate collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Transportation. The Joint Office will align resources and expertise across the two departments toward leveraged outcomes. The office will be a critical component in the implementation of the BIL, providing support and expertise to a multitude of programs that seek to deploy a network of electric vehicle chargers, zero-emission fueling infrastructure, and zero-emission transit and school buses. The scope of the Joint Office will continue to evolve as directed by both departments.Contact us Technical assistance
Benefits of investing in our electric vehicle charging infrastructure
Initial priorities of the Joint Office will be to support states with planning and to implement the National Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure program.
Support electric vehicles
Accelerates the adoption of electric vehicles, including for those who cannot reliably charge at home to enable up to 50% of new vehicle sales to be electric by 2030.
Reduces transportation-related emissions and helps put the United States on a path to net-zero emissions by no later than 2050.
Positions U.S. industries to lead global transportation electrification efforts and create good jobs.
A network for everyone
Targeted equity benefits for disadvantaged communities, reducing mobility and energy burdens while also creating jobs and supporting businesses.
