Governments, policymakers, businesses, and utilities will need to work together closely to realize the full potential of the IRA. RMI’s report How Policy Actions Can Spur EV Adoption in the United States, provides stakeholders with the analysis they need to make data-informed decisions, detailing the challenges facing IRA implementation and ways forward.
The 2030 National Charging Network: Estimating U.S. Light-Duty Demand for Electric Vehicle Charging InfrastructureDipo Fadeyi2023-07-06T12:12:20-04:00
As established by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation (Joint Office) is setting the vision for a national charging network that is convenient, affordable, reliable, and equitable to enable a future where everyone can ride and drive electric. This report supports the vision of the Joint Office by presenting a quantitative needs assessment for a national charging network capable of supporting 30–42 million PEVs on the road by 2030.
Electric Vehicle Charging Analytics and Reporting Tool (EV-ChART) Data Format and Preparation Guidance Version 1.0Dipo Fadeyi2023-07-06T12:35:16-04:00
This EV-ChART Data Format and Preparation Guidance provides a comprehensive overview of the data reporting requirements as authorized under 23 CFR 680.112. The guidance is intended to be used alongside the EV-ChART Data Input Template, which defines the tabular data structure that these data submissions must follow.
Near-Term Infrastructure Deployment to Support Zero-Emission Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles in the United StatesDipo Fadeyi2023-07-05T16:52:12-04:00
The electrification of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (MHDVs) is gaining momentum in the United States, and the major manufacturers in the country have made ambitious commitments for the mass production of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) as early as 2030. State-level regulations such as California’s Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) rule, federal incentives in the Inflation Reduction Act, and the U.S. commitment to join the Global Commercial Drive to Zero (aimed at 100% ZEV sales by 2040) are increasing ZEV adoption in the MHDV sector. Electrifying transportation nationwide will require the deployment of charging (for battery electric vehicles) and refueling (for hydrogen vehicles) infrastructure, as well as the supporting electrical grid infrastructure. MHDV fleet operators, electric utilities, and policymakers alike are uncertain as to where, how much, and by what year charging and refueling infrastructure needs to be built, and what upgrades to grid infrastructure are required to enable this deployment.
Armed with the resources in this toolkit, rural communities will have the tools and information they need to start planning and implementing EV infrastructure projects and ultimately realize the benefits of electric transportation
Electric car markets are seeing exponential growth as sales exceeded 10 million in 2022. A total of 14% of all new cars sold were electric in 2022, up from around 9% in 2021 and less than 5% in 2020. Three markets dominated global sales. China was the frontrunner once again, accounting for around 60% of global electric car sales. More than half of the electric cars on roads worldwide are now in China and the country has already exceeded its 2025 target for new energy vehicle sales. In Europe, the second largest market, electric car sales increased by over 15% in 2022, meaning that more than one in every five cars sold was electric. Electric car sales in the United States – the third largest market –increased 55% in 2022, reaching a sales share of 8%.
This research report conducted by the Smart Electric Power Alliance explores what success looks like for managed charging and load management programs and proposes strategies programs can use to increase customer engagement.
