Federal officials with $7.5 billion to spend on building a national network of electric vehicle charging stations want the money to start flowing this year, and they plan to issue guidance to states next month on how to apply for it.

Representatives of the U.S. energy and transportation departments told an EV charging summit Thursday that the guidance would probably be released the second week of February. It will tell states how to assemble plans for deploying chargers along highways and within communities, which will then be submitted to the government for funding.
