A year ago, I shared a report called, 'Charge The North' which shared results from a 1000 electric vehicle load profiling study.
We have now completed an new study called, 'EV Growing pains'. This report contrasts how EV load has changed over the past 5 years (2014-2020).
- 3900 EVs across 40 makes/models included in the study
- 28.9 M miles of driving data
- 761,096 Charging sessions
- 8,576 MWh of charging EV load
Rapid shift toward LR BEVs
– Only 14% of EV market share in 2014 to almost 70% in 2019
EVs are driven further and more often, resulting in greater charging demands, but charging patterns are less predictable
– 759 miles monthly in 2014 to 1,160 miles monthly in 2019
– Double the energy consumption per charge session from 9 kWh to 18 kWh
Increase in L2 home charging
– 63% of charging in 2014 to 80% of charging in 2019
Higher powered charging
– 6.6 kW (2014 Nissan Leaf) to 11.5 kW (2019 Tesla Model 3)
– More than double the average summer peak load contribution from 0.41 kW to 1.01 kW
