Research on the Planning of EV Fast Charging Stations | MDPI

Electric vehicles (EVs) have been developed as a sustainable substitute for conventional gasoline-powered vehicles in response to the escalating global energy and environmental crises. Aiming to have 80 million electric vehicles on the road by 2030, China has set out ambitious objectives to support the growth of its new energy vehicle industry. However, the rapid expansion of EVs poses difficulties, particularly in the development of charging infrastructure, which is necessary for the widespread use of EVs. The development of EVs is still hampered by slow construction and inadequate capacity planning, despite China’s plans to create a charging infrastructure system that can accommodate the needs of over 20 million EVs by the end of 2025. It is essential to address these issues to ensure user convenience and reduce the impact on the distribution network, as the demand for charging stations is expected to continue to rise in the future.

This report discusses the development of a joint-optimization model for the best placement of fast charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) and the efficient operation of a distribution network, taking into account user preference selection and the impact of EV access on the local distribution network.

Home charging access and the implications for charging infrastructure costs in the United States | The ICCT

The absence of a sufficient infrastructure for charging EVs has been one of the main barriers to the market’s growth. When coupled with market growth, a significant amount of charging infrastructure must be deployed before owning and operating electric vehicles can be as practical and convenient as those propelled by combustion engines. A recent ICCT report estimates that between 2021 and 2030, 2.4 million non-home chargers would need to be installed, costing $28 billion in infrastructure investment.

This report analyzes the need for charging infrastructure for electric vehicles in the United States, explores different charging deployment strategies, and emphasizes the importance of home charging access. It also discusses best practices for public policy to facilitate the proliferation of home charging access.

Policies to electrify European roads | DWS

Despite the ambitious climate and environmental goals set by the European Union, the transport sector has largely been absent from the decarbonization efforts to date. This poses a significant challenge to meeting emission reduction targets, as transportation is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions

This report explores the transformational journey required for decarbonization of the European transport sector and proposes actions to mobilize capital for this transition. It assesses the growth of electric vehicles and charging point infrastructure, evaluates the risks and opportunities, and proposes financing models for private sector investment. The report emphasizes the urgency of meeting the EU’s emission reduction targets and the need to coordinate responses with geopolitical allies to mitigate longer-term risks.
