Department of Energy - March 5, 2013

The Obama Admin­is­tra­tion wants to speed the tran­si­tion to more sus­tain­able energy sources that will help drive eco­nomic growth.

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.
