Biden Wants 500,000 EV Charging Stations. Here’s Where They Should Go 8.9.21
Fewer than 10% of Americans have easy access to an electric vehicle charging station. The Biden Administration wants EVs to comprise 50% of all new car sales by 2030, an ambitious target that will likely require broader consumer incentives. But if electric vehicles are going to achieve mass market adoption, people also need to be able to find charging plugs. The U.S. has 104,000 public charging plugs available today, just 18% of which are so-called “Level 3” or “DC fast chargers,” which can replenish an EV battery in an hour or less.

There’s an expected $7.5 billion for EV charging included in the $1.2 trillion “hard” infrastructure package currently being debated in Congress. A new analysis of EV charging access in the 50 largest U.S. cities could help authorities decide where to put those plugs to optimize public access. Only 9.7% of households in U.S. cities have access to a public EV charging station within 1/4 mile (or a 5-minute walk) from home. This is something that the Biden Administration hopes to increase in order to meet their goal by 2030.
