All about EV charging
The infrastructure investment & jobs act accelerates the build-out of EV charging stations. Learn more about the funding, makers, and energy consumption of EV chargers.
$5 Billion for EV Chargers
USDOT and USDOE announce that $5 Billion will be available to states over the next five years for a national EV charging network. In addition, under the new National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program established by the new Infrastructure Law, the US government will support the buildout of the electric vehicle charging network to make electric vehicle charging more available across the country.

Thermal Management of Battery Systems will Remain Essential.
The creation of power creates heat. Therefore, battery systems will need cooling systems. In addition, regardless of the type of battery to date, batteries need heat to protect them from cold temperatures.
Interior cabins also need thermal management that often can be supplied by the high voltage and current battery systems that run the motors and drive trains. Heat-pumps, PTC heater, and Peltier thermoelectric cooling systems run on conventional voltages will remain necessary for creature comforts.
