A robust and well-connected network of highway charging stations in New York and Massachusetts.

Transportation decarbonization is a primary goal in New York and Massachusetts. New York approved legislation in 2021 aiming for 100% zero-emission passenger car sales by 2035, and both states have implemented the Advanced Clean Trucks rule, which mandates an increasing amount of zero-emission medium- and heavy-duty vehicle (MHDV) sales beginning in 2025. To achieve these goals, a strong and well-connected network of highway charging stations offering on-route fast-charging as well as home, workplace, and depot charging would be required. When paired with sales and manufacturing incentives like those mentioned in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, convenient access to fast charging will considerably encourage the expansion of the EV industry and user adoption.

This paper simulates expected power consumption increase between 2022 and 2045 by projecting site-specific impacts at potential highway charging spots using 71 sites in New York and Massachusetts. The recommendations resulting from this research will assist lawmakers, utilities, and site owners in planning for highway fast-charging deployment that not only supports but also accelerates the adoption of ZEVs.

Achieve global ZEV transition success

Many customers and fleet owners are still hesitant or unable to purchase electric cars, often due to concerns about a lack of easily available infrastructure for charging and fueling. Although certain nations and subnational jurisdictions may have ambitious plans for ZEV infrastructure, it will be critical to conduct cutting-edge demonstration projects and develop supportive regulations in order to ensure a successful worldwide ZEV transition.

This paper presents case studies on the global implementation of electric car charging infrastructures. The instances describe the planning and regulatory frameworks utilised by governments to promote infrastructure and ZEV implementation. These nations are adopting cutting-edge partnerships and initiatives to increase ZEV fleet adoption, the deployment of public and private charging infrastructure, and public knowledge of the reduced total cost of ownership associated with ZEV use.

Developing a robust, stable, and broad charging infrastructure network

The installation of charging stations in the United Kingdom will be critical to the transition to electric vehicles (EVs). The UK charging infrastructure network must be expanded as fast as possible, not only to keep up with the tremendous growth in EV ownership and driving, but also to encourage non-EV owners to purchase an EV. More charging stations that facilitate smart charging and vehicle-to-grid communication should be installed in strategic areas. Although next-generation batteries will be technologically compatible with today’s network, charging behaviour must be future-proofed.

This paper investigates the major issues associated with developing a robust, trustworthy, and broad charging infrastructure network in the United Kingdom.
