US makes $54M available to expand access to e-mobility solutions

The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office), through the Department of Energy (DOE), has made available $54 million in new federal funding for projects that will expand community e-mobility access and provide clean reliable energy (DE-FOA-0003214).

The funding will drive innovation in equitable clean transportation and is aligned with strategies detailed in the US National Blueprint for Transportation Decarbonization. This program will make strategic investments at the local level that address key barriers to expanding access to electrified mobility options for individuals without home charging; accelerate the transition to electrified fleets; and mature the implementation of managed charging systems to mitigate impacts and optimize usage of the grid.

The funding is administered by the Joint Office through DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). Topic areas in the Joint Office’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 funding opportunity include:

  • Solving for No-Home Charging: Expanding Charging Access for Privately Owned E-Mobility

  • Expanding E-Mobility Solutions through Electrified Micro, Light and Medium-Duty Fleets

  • Managed Charging for Clean Reliable Energy.

Prior to submitting a full application for this opportunity, applicants must submit a concept paper by 20 May 2024.
