Experts Discuss the Upcoming Role of the Energy Department in Working Toward IIJA Policy Goals
Mitigating the impacts of climate change remains top priority for the Administration and its Agencies. Programs and projects designed to reduce emissions from the transportation sector receive significant funding in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law/IIJA. And in advance of the releasing programmatic and other guidance under the climate heading, US Secretaries Pete Buttigieg, Department of Transportation and Jennifer M. Granholm, Department of Energy signed a memorandum of understanding creating a Joint Office of Energy and Transportation. The Joint Office’s first area of focus is the planning and implementation of the National Electric Vehicle Charging Program; however, the BIL/IIJA prioritizes collaboration, and INRIX believes there are number of areas for transportation and energy agencies to work together toward shared goals of carbon reduction.
This next in the series of webinars on the BIL/IIJA will focus on the role of state energy offices when it comes to reducing emissions from the transportation sector. Our guest speaker, Cassandra Powers, Senior Managing Director, National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO), will not only highlight the role and expertise of state energy offices when it comes to carbon reduction strategies, but will also share resources and provide an overview of how NASEO is working to help implement BIL/IIJA.
