National Study Charts Path for Nationwide EV Charging Infrastructure to Support
- Groundbreaking NREL Study Identifies Infrastructure Needed To Support Electric Vehicle Charging Nationwide Ambitious federal clean energy goals, including efforts to see EVs represent the majority of light-duty vehicle sales by 2030, could lead to 30 million–42 million EVs on the road by 2030. Now, a White House-commissioned study, referred to as the National Charging Network report, has estimated the number, type, and location of the infrastructure needed to support these vehicles. That infrastructure will form the backbone of the country's next great public works project: nationwide access to EV charging.
- Main facts
Projected EV Growth: The study projects that achieving these goals could result in 30 million to 42 million EVs on the road by 2030.
White House Commissioned: The study is White House-commissioned, highlighting the national significance of the initiative.
National Charging Network: This initiative, often referred to as the National Charging Network, aims to estimate the number, type, and location of infrastructure required to support the growing, number of EVs.
Backbone of Public Works: The envisioned EV charging infrastructure is seen as the foundation for a significant public works project, aiming to provide nationwide access to EV charging,
