Joint Office of Energy and Transportation

Electric school bus charging

The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation is a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The Office supports the deployment of zero-emission, convenient, accessible, and equitable transportation infrastructure. Learn more at:

The Joint Office provides support and expertise to a multitude of stakeholders and programs that seek to deploy a network of:

  • Electric vehicle (EV) chargers
  • Zero-emission fueling infrastructure
  • Zero-emission transit and school buses

The Joint Office will support the buildout of a nationwide network of electric vehicle chargers, zero-emission fueling infrastructure, and zero-emission transit and school buses by aligning resources and expertise to achieve this strategic goal through unifying guidance, technical assistance, and analysis for the following programs:

  • National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program: This DOT program provides $5 billion for states to build a national EV charging network with stations spaced no more than 50 miles apart and within one mile of the interstate exit or highway.
  • Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program: This program provides $2.5 billion in grant funds to strategically deploy publicly accessible EV charging and alternative fueling infrastructure in communities where people live and work.
  • Low or No Emission Vehicle Program for Transit: This DOT program provides $5.6 billion in support of low- and no-emission transit bus deployments.
  • Clean School Bus Program: Through this program, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is providing $5 billion in support of electric school bus deployments.
