The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will establish a Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) to study, plan, coordinate, and implement joint issues, including:

  • Technical assistance related to the deployment, operation, and maintenance of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and hydrogen fueling infrastructure, vehicle-to-grid integration, and related programs and policies;
  • Data sharing of installation, maintenance, and utilization to continue to inform the network build out of EVSE and hydrogen fueling infrastructure;
  • Performance of a national and regionalized study of EVSE and hydrogen fueling infrastructure needs and deployment factors, to support grants for community resilience and electric vehicle (EV) integration;
  • Development and deployment of training and certification programs;
  • Electric infrastructure and utility accommodation planning in transportation rights-of ways; and,
  • Research, strategies, and actions to reduce transportation-related emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change.

The Joint Office will create a public database that includes EVSE data maintained on the DOE Alternative Fuels Data Center's Alternative Fueling Station Locator and potential EVSE locations identified by eligible entities.
