As the electric vehicle market expands, substantial investment in home, workplace, and public charging infrastructure will be necessary. This analysis “Home charging access and the implications for charging infrastructure costs in the United States” by the International Council on Clean Transportation shows how additional efforts to expand home charging access can lead to overall reductions in the total costs required to deploy the necessary charging ecosystem.

The study finds the total private and public sector costs of deploying the necessary charging infrastructure through 2030 are reduced when the availability of home charging is increased. The analysis shows that there is significant potential to provide a greater amount of the U.S. population with access to charging at home, and that doing so would be particularly cost-effective. Policymakers would ideally consider supporting expansion of home charging access within their communities to encourage EV adoption and maximize limited public funds simultaneously.
