WASHINGTON—Today, the White House highlighted the Charge@Work program as part of its EV Acceleration Challenge to meet the Biden administration’s goal of having electric vehicles (EVs) account for 50 percent of all new vehicle sales in the United States by 2030. The Charge@Work program, a partnership between the Electrification Coalition, CALSTART, Forth, Plug In America, and EVNoire, will engage a combined 50,000 employers, with an overall goal of 100,000 charging stations at workplaces. The Electrification Coalition’s responsibility alone under the project aims to deploy 20,000 EV charging stations at workplaces.

“EV charging infrastructure is critical to reducing the national security risks brought by our dependence on oil for transportation,” said Ben Prochazka, executive director of the Electrification Coalition. “Workplace charging offers a tremendous opportunity, particularly for the millions of Americans who live in multi-unit dwellings and may be unable to charge their EVs at home. Through the Charge@Work program, we can make EVs more accessible.”

The Electrification Coalition looks forward to launching additional initiatives and programs soon that complement the administration’s EV deployment goal and will accelerate the adoption of light-, medium- and heavy-duty EVs.
