Even though EV sales grew by 85% from 2020 to 2021, many consumers are still concerned and are discouraged from buying an EV. In response to this, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will provide $7.5 B for developing a national network of EV Chargers in the US. It aims to build 500,000 EV Chargers across the country. Not only will this build more infrastructure, but this will also create more jobs for its citizens. It also aims to help the environment since according to UCS, cars, and trucks account for nearly one-fifth of all US emissions, emitting around 24 pounds of carbon dioxide and other global-warming gases for every gallon of gas.
The administration said in a statement “there was broad consensus that charging stations and vehicles need to be interoperable and provide a seamless user experience, no matter what car you drive or where you charge your EV.”
If the target is met, there is an estimate of having more than 48 million electric vehicles on the US road by the year 2030.
