Electric vehicles have long been lauded as a key part of our transition to a low-carbon future. But the impact of EVs remains, admittedly, a little intangible. Conversations around electric vehicles often point to the future: How, if every new car and truck were electric, climate pollution would drop by 35%, and prevent thousands of premature deaths from air pollution. But are EVs having any impact now—and if so, how much?

Sixty percent of the 33 million EVs expected by 2030 are projected to be in suburban areas, according to a report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Of the remainder, 20% will be in rural locations and another 20% in urban areas. The charging network needs for EVs are different depending on whether EV owners live in rural, suburban, or urban areas. While electricity from public DC fast chargers would be the most utilized in urban areas (40%), in rural and suburban areas, Level 1 (L1) and Level 2 (L2) chargers in single family homes are expected to meet the majority of EV...Read More

Things I miss about my local gas station:

That’s it. That’s the list. OK, fine, I did enjoy the communal squeegees. 

This week marks six months since the grand opening of my home electric-vehicle charging station. Congrats to the whole team! (Me and my electrician.) Located between my garage door and recycling bin, it’s hard to beat for the convenience. And also the price.

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory expects Level 1 and Level 2 charging to handle 80% of all EV charging duties by 2030. Sufficient energy from the electric grid may be needed to support 33 million EVs on the road by 2030. The majority (64%) of EV charging is estimated to take place at single family homes using L1 and L2 charging, which is typically the most cost-effective and convenient type of charging. DC fast charging infrastructure is expected to support 20% of EV charging needs.
