Today, the increase of electric vehicle ownership and usage requires a large network of electric vehicle charging stations. That is why electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) infrastructure aims to provide convenient and widespread access to various charging sources.
While electric vehicle owners can usually charge their vehicles at home, many are looking for additional charging opportunities. Electric vehicle charging ports stationed at commonly visited locations can provide a degree of charging flexibility to those who regularly use electric vehicles. Moreover, the United States Department of Energy is hopeful that additional charging areas can also aid in bolstering market acceptance of electric vehicles.
EVSE infrastructure programs include the implementation of public electric vehicle charging stations. Public charging stations tend to be located in commonly visited areas where vehicle owners are “highly concentrated,” such as shopping centers, airports, hotels, rest stops, and other popular businesses and government locations or offices.
Further, the development of workplace charging areas is also becoming a popular incentive for companies in many EVSE infrastructure proposals. Workplace charging areas can demonstrate companies’ support for green energy technology while providing a convenient way for employees to charge their electric vehicles at work.
According to some sources electric vehicles can significantly lower fuel costs for individuals. The energy cost per mile for electric vehicles may be substantially lower than the energy cost per mile for gasoline vehicles. Further, electric vehicles also have the potential to reduce the amount of harmful emissions released into the air. Vehicles that run solely on electricity emit zero tailpipe emissions.
