DOE announces $187 million in funding to accelerate EV technologies and train electrified workforce

DOE will provide $99.5 million in new funding and an additional $87 million for 45 selected projects to develop EV technologies, train the electrified-transportation workforce and ensure equitable deployment of clean transportation in disadvantaged communities.

The projects across 18 states and DC have multiple goals, including  improving EV charging infrastructure in underserved communities, developing EV batteries using abundant materials and educating consumers on the benefits of EVs.

The funding is intended to support the administration’s Investing in America agenda that seeks to onshore and reshore domestic manufacturing of technologies and infrastructure critical to the electrification of transportation.

“The selected projects,” said US Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm, “reflect the Department’s commitment to advancing the clean transportation sector—from expanding convenient charging options to growing the future workforce and developing the key technologies that will lead to our fully electrified transportation future.”
