Description (excerpt):

The Alliance for Transportation Electrification (“ATE” or the “Alliance”) is pleased to offer these comments in response to the Request for Information posted by the Federal Highway Administration on November 29, 2021 (Federal Register, Vol. 86, No. 226, Page 67783) opening Docket No. FHWA-2021-0022. This proceeding results from passage by Congress of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), or Public Law 117-58 on November 15, 2021, and in particular, the National Electric Vehicle Formula Program (EV Charging Program), providing funding to States to strategically deploy EV charging infrastructure and to establish an interconnected network to facilitate data collection, access, and reliability. The law also establishes a discretionary grant program for Charging and Fueling Infrastructure (Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Program) to strategically deploy publicly accessible EV charging infrastructure and hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling infrastructure along designated alternative fuel corridors or in certain other locations that are accessible to all drivers of such vehicles. These provisions of the law are of course of great interest to the Alliance as they have the potential to substantially move the country forward in developing electric transportation markets. They represent a unique, perhaps once in a decade, opportunity to make a major Federal investment in the country’s emerging infrastructure to support the burgeoning electric vehicle market which will be so vital to achieving our nation’s environmental objectives, contributing to our global competitiveness and national security as well as benefits to EV owners.
