President Biden’s American Jobs Plan calls for $174 billion in funding for EV incentives and EV charging. Starting in April 2020, a growing national coalition of cleantech companies and organizations representing business, labor, and startup innovation has joined the call for the Transportation Electrification Partnership (TEP)‘s $150 billion federal stimulus proposal, urging Congress to make unprecedented investments in the nation’s transportation infrastructure in direct response to the economic and health crisis caused by harmful pollution that disproportionately impacts communities of color.
Spearheaded by TEP and the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI), the national coalition currently represents leaders from 18 states and Washington, D.C. calling for zero emissions vehicle manufacturing and innovation, infrastructure deployment, public and active transit, job training, high-quality workforce standards, and support for related startups and small business, prioritizing those started by underrepresented founders.
The Transportation Electrification Partnership is an unprecedented regional public-private collaboration to accelerate deep reductions in climate and air pollution by the time of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games by pursuing bold targets, pilots, initiatives, and policies that are equity-driven, create quality jobs, and grow the economy.
The Partnership was established by LACI in May 2018 following conversations between several individuals who now comprise some of the Leadership Group members. The Leadership Group is the governing body of the Partnership with the top principals representing each organization, and includes the key entities needed to accelerate zero emissions mobility and goods movement by the time of the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games in the Greater Los Angeles region.
The Leadership Group is complemented by a growing and influential Advisory Group, comprised of representatives key to achieving the Partnership goal and targets, including: leading automakers, industry organizations, public sector agencies, startup companies and labor organizations.
