Electric vehicle (EV) penetration is slowly increasing in the United States, but remains a very small component of overall light-duty vehicle sales. Accelerating the pace of EV deployment—be it for decarbonization goals or specific public goals such as cleaner air—depends on developing a robust public charging infrastructure. But how much public infrastructure will be needed, of what kind, and where are all still subject to debate. Further, the business case for public charging remains challenging. As a result, some states are looking to utilities to fund this infrastructure.
The CSIS Energy and National Security Program is pleased to host a panel discussion of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, including the role that utilities could play in financing, owning, and operating this infrastructure.
