Electric vehicles (EVs), a relatively new and unusual sight on the busy roads, have been made more affordable and attractive to the average car buyer over the past decade. 2020 will be the year of electric vehicles. EV sales Unprecedented records were set that far exceeded analyst expectations, particularly in countries with a large customer base and favorable government policies to facilitate the transition. Thanks to consumer enthusiasm and positive government regulations and incentives the number of industry stakeholders committed to phasing-out the internal combustion engines (ICE) seems exponentially to increase every five years. A further fact is that according to a report McKinsey and Company reports that 45% of European customers prefer the EV route to purchasing a vehicle.

Inflation Reduction Act (USA) and EU commitments to make ICE obsolete by 2035 are significant tailwinds in favor of the EV charging industry. The report predicts that 75% European new cars will be EVs by 2030, which suggests continued growth in the EV market. This has led to a race to create enough public charging stations for the ever-increasing need and to help meet carbon emission reduction targets. Tesla Inc.

An Overview of America’s EV Charging Sector

The United States is home to only 5 percent global population but contributes more 28% of global carbon emissions. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill was passed by the Biden administration to reduce emissions and reach reduction targets by 2050. To develop the nation’s EV charging infrastructure, the Act will provide more than $7.5 Billion to the EV market. By 2030, the goal is to have more than 500,000 public chargers in the country. But there is one catch: report McKinsey estimates, that even if half the vehicles are electric by 2030, in line with federal targets, America will still need more than 1.2 Million public EV chargers and 28,000,000 EV chargers by 2030. This report shows that simply setting up charging stations in random places will not encourage EV growth. Public charging stations must be economically viable, distributed fairly, attractive to use, and connected to a reliable power grid. This will keep EVs on the road. Companies that plan to use them must also be offered a business opportunity and an incentive structure. According to the report, EVs will make up about 15% of all vehicles if the country meets the federal EV sales targets.
