US Electrical Manufacturers Play Major Role in Historic Investment in 21st Century Infrastructure
November 8, 2021

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) welcomes the bipartisan comprehensive infrastructure legislation passed today. NEMA represents more than 300 U.S. electrical and medical imaging manufacturers uniquely positioned to deliver the promise of a modernized, electrified, connected infrastructure and modern energy system to all Americans, including the 370,000 women and men employed by electrical manufacturers nationwide.

“The comprehensive package passed today represents a significant milestone in the transformation of U.S. infrastructure toward accessible, electrified transportation systems, modernized buildings and lighting, a more resilient grid, and increased efficiency of expanded U.S. manufacturing,” said NEMA President and CEO Debra Phillips, who joined the organization in September 2021. “NEMA members are integral to realizing this vision in ways that will enhance the quality of life for all Americans, grow our economy, protect the environment and serve the nation’s long-term interests.”

According to NEMA’s analysis, the bill directs $23.7 billion in direct funding to electrification-related energy projects. That total includes nearly $8.3 billion for grid investments; $320 million for buildings and lighting; $2.5 billion for transportation charging equipment; $735 million for industrial efficiency; and $800 million to expand U.S. manufacturing.

The legislation provides an additional $390.9 billion in funds more broadly focused on projects of which electrification is an integral part. In particular, NEMA members will contribute to essential investments in modernizing the electrical grid, expanding transmission, EV charging, upgrading power infrastructure, electrification of ports and airports, updating building codes, and improving the efficiency of industrial facilities and water systems.

“While this legislation provides an unprecedented opportunity to bolster our nation’s infrastructure, its promise will only be realized if our manufacturing, supply chain, and regulatory systems are able to meet the coming demand,” added Phillips. “Our industry looks forward to working with lawmakers on policies and programs that will fortify our nation’s manufacturing base, strengthen supply chain systems and streamline regulatory programs to support the creation of an electrified, connected, and sustainable future.”
