The Biden administration unveiled a new set of measures Wednesday designed to tackle a persistent problem with driving long distances in an electric vehicle (EV): finding a charging station that works for your car’s model.

The plan announced Wednesday, officials hope, will gradually do away with the issue by building out a network of both government and private chargers that work with any EV.

This announcement also includes commitments from companies including Tesla (TSLA), General Motors (GM) and others to build their own interoperable charging stations that would complement the government’s system.

“These new standards will make it so that you can charge your EV along major highways as easy as you can fill up for gas — no matter what kind of car you drive or what state you’re in,” said White House Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu.
