In an effort to speed up the country’s transition to renewable energy, the Biden administration has proposed new criteria to build a national network of 500,000 charging stations for electric vehicles by 2030. Electrification of the transportation sector, which is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, will be crucial in combating climate change.

- Increase the use of electric vehicles
- Ensure that charging stations are easily accessible to everyone
- Transition its federal fleet of 600,000 automobiles and trucks to electric by 2035
