Charging industry agrees on carbon credit standards

Charging industry agrees on carbon credit standards

Today, the United States has about 49,500 public charging outlets for 1 million electric cars on the road, according to the EVCCC.

Under the Paris climate accord, which President Trump withdrew from but whose goals many electric-car advocates still follow, the country was expected to have 330,000 charging outlets and 14 million electric cars by 2025. To close that gap and meet world climate goals will require six times as many outlets and 14 times as many electric cars on U.S. roads.

“More comprehensive and faster EV charging infrastructure have both been identified as key reasons drivers avoid EVs,” says Wayne Killen, director for charging infrastructure planning and business at Electrify America, citing Strategic Vision’s New Vehicle Experience Survey among others. “There is an acute lack of charging infrastructure, especially more costly DC fast charging, in convenient public locations.”
