Federal Investment in EV Infrastructure


Today, President Biden is announcing his infrastructure initiative in
Pittsburgh, PA. The Administration's plan is expected to propose $174
billion in new federal investment in battery-powered electric vehicles
(EVs), representing the future of American mobility and the push for clean,
renewable energy in transportation that reduces carbon emissions.

We'd like to share the Responsible Battery Coalition's (RBC) comment on the
President's infrastructure proposal:

"The Responsible Battery Coalition applauds the Biden Administration's
efforts to expand the integration of battery-powered electric vehicles
across the U.S., including infrastructure investments and new consumer
incentives, and for recognizing the need for sustainable battery recycling
programs to conserve resources and protect the environment."

- Steve Christensen, Executive Director of the Responsible Battery

EVs currently only represent 1 percent of the entire U.S. fleet. However,
as the EV market increases, public interest in the batteries that power
them is growing too. As you cover the impact of the Administration's EV
proposals, we'd love to connect you with a subject matter expert from the
Responsible Battery Coalition’s who can speak to:


   Comprehensive ways to strengthen research and development of
   transportation technologies

   Reducing our reliance on foreign countries like China on battery

   Increasing U.S. battery and materials manufacturing

   Decreasing emissions

   Battery recycling and battery maintenance best practices

The RBC is the premiere coalition of major stakeholders in battery
manufacturing and battery use sectors, that works to identify opportunities
to accelerate the development of recycling and circular supply chains for
future battery chemistries.

Look forward to hearing from you,
