 Reps. Sean Casten (D-Ill.) and Paul Tonko(D-N.Y.) will introduce the EV Grid Act today to direct the Energy Department to study and develop a plan to meet the anticipated electricity demand from new electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The study would include the anticipated growth in the use of EVs under the president’s climate targets and would assess how much additional electrical generation, transmission and distribution capacity will be needed to meet the demand.
