Find out what the DOE is doing to help this transition.

As part of the Obama Administration’s commitment to speeding the transition to more sustainable energy sources that will help drive economic growth, the Energy Department today announced 16 major U.S. employers and two stakeholder groups have joined the Workplace Charging Challenge to give more American workers access to new transportation options, while another three U.S. corporations have joined the National Clean Fleets Partnership.

The Workplace Charging Challenge is a collaborative effort to increase the number of U.S. employers offering workplace charging by tenfold in the next five years. The Challenge also supports to the broader efforts of the EV Everywhere Grand Challenge, announced last year by President Obama, to make PEVs as affordable and convenient for the American family as gasoline-powered vehicles within the next 10 years.
