EV Chargers and Charging Infrastructure

According to the US Department of Energy December 2014 evaluation of EV Charging Station study:

  • The electric power industry expects a 400% growth in annual sales of plug-in electric vehicles by 2023. As a result, future infrastructure changes will be needed to handle large vehicle charging loads.
  • The U.S. Department of Energy and the electricity industry have jointly invested over $7.9 billion in 99 cost-shared Smart Grid Investment Grant projects to modernize the electric grid.
  • The major finding of the study was that there are relatively few plug-in electric chargers on the road today which presents a tremendous growth opportunity.
  • Faster chargers require more expertise to install in homes and public stations, installing a 240-volt charging station, which typically charges 3-5 times as fast as a charger using a standard 120-volt outlet, requires a licensed electrician and occasionally service upgrades.
  • Public charging station installation had high costs and required substantial coordination with equipment vendors, installers, and host organizations to address construction, safety, and code requirements.
  • Our EV team recognizes that many drivers today do most of their charging at home, but many others still require access to a robust nationwide charging station network before even considering the purchase of an electric vehicle.

Studies show that there are seven main barriers to rapid growth of charging stations and infrastructure:

  1. The actual charging station hardware,
  2. Other hardware and materials,
  3. Electrician training, experience, and other labor,
  4. Mobilization, identification, demand, confirmation of type
  5. Coordination among car dealerships, drivers, agencies and municipalities
  6. Engineering Permitting.
  7. KWH Monitoring

Our EV team has created a business model that addresses all of these issues.
