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.
