The uptake of EVs is growing globally, but the current deployment pace of sustainable and inclusive charging infrastructure is insufficient to support the expected number of 350 million electric light-duty vehicles on the roads by 2030. To reach the 1.5° goal of the Paris Agreement, we need to rapidly increase the speed and scale of investments in charging infrastructure.

The report provides a technology and policy framework for the mobility, energy and real estate sectors to enable conditions for a timely, sustainable and fair transition to 100% electric fleets, acting as a catalyst for EV growth. It highlights nine key business and policy actions at the intersection of these three sectors that can unlock shared value and improve the business case for sustainable infrastructure implementation:

  • Address the needs of different EV fleets
  • Maximize charging from renewables
  • Establish coordinated strategic planning and management
  • Incentivize and streamline charging integration
  • Encourage deployment of smart grid technologies
  • Engage and incentivize flexible consumers
  • Agree on data-sharing principles
  • Connect transport modes
  • Share space and charging infrastructure

  • Agree on data-sharing principles

Love that this is highlighted. We're not going to brute force our way to electrification, but it must be done intelligently to be widespread and longlasting. That requires regular and accurate data collection, processing, and subsequent modeling/analysis.
