Scaling Up Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure: Lessons from China and the United States for the Indian Context
To expand India’s charging infrastructure, this report provides best practices from two of the largest EV markets – China and the United States – for the Indian context. This report aims to provide Indian policymakers and stakeholders with a review of the key challenges facing EV charging infrastructure markets in China and the United States.
This paper examines ways that public and private stakeholders can work together to better understand and tackle the oft-overlooked costs and benefits of public fast charging infrastructure that is accessible to all. While electricity remains the largest cost driver, the full stack of costs also includes equipment at the early stage of a technology adoption curve, construction and installation costs, ongoing networking and maintenance costs, among other factors.
NACFE’s purpose in this report is to help clarify in an unbiased way the differences and similarities in this intimidating wide spectrum of developing powertrain choices facing fleets.
Transportation sector is the largest contributor of global greenhouse gas emissions in the USA. Disruptive technological changes in this sector, such as alternative fuel vehicles, are crucial for emission reduction. This report analyzes how a cost-minimizing strategic transition plan can be developed for a transportation ﬁrm that aims to adopt electric trucks in their fully diesel ﬂeet, over time.
This white paper evaluates the business case of hosting a Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging station in New York. The analysis relied on charging use data provided by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) along with real-world data on equipment use, costs, revenue, and assumptions derived from industry reports and original research. The report explored scenarios that vary charging use and revenue sources to better understand the key factors that drive profitability from hosting these stations.
This paper analyzes the capital costs of the electric vehicle charging infrastructure needed for public, workplace, and home charging for the most populous 100 metropolitan areas in the United States from 2019 through 2025. The 100 metropolitan areas analyzed represent 88% of all new electric vehicles sold and 75% of the overall U.S. vehicle market.
This paper quantifies the infrastructure needs and associated costs for implementing battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell trucks in three applications: long-haul intercity tractor-trailers, drayage trucks, and medium-duty delivery trucks.
