New Joint Office Resource Seeks to Create Convenient EV Charging

Feb. 27, 2024
New whitepaper aims to provide equitable access to EV charging.

In line with the Biden-Harris Administration’s Justice40 initiative, the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) has released a new whitepaper on innovative mobility options for all types of communities, including renters and multifamily housing residents. According to the press release, the resource advances the office’s goal of providing convenient, equitable access to EV charging.

Intended for the use of public officials, property and vehicle owners, utilities, and other stakeholders, the paper includes strategies that go beyond installing private onsite EV chargers at multifamily properties, including charging in the public right-of-way and technical and cost-saving solutions to common barriers, such as:

  • streetlight charging,

  • smart outlets and panels,

  • mobile charging, and

  • “bring-your-own cord” approaches.

Readers will also find case studies and example projects included in this new resource from both the U.S. and Europe detailing how public charging can serve all community members, including multifamily housing residents.
