WBCSD Charging infrastructure Value framework
- Nov 24, 2021 8:56 am GMT
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
EV charging is developing exponentially. It is now a 30bnUSD market. growing annually at 20%. But ultra-fast charging comes with technical challenges as the impact on the local electricity networks are tremendous. We look at solutions with Arcady..
