What’s the easiest road to EV success for my facility?
The journey to broad EV adoption in the U.S.
The number of electric vehicles on American roads is increasing daily — and it’s elevating the nationwide demand for more public and private EV charging stations. Expert forecasts. estimate that by 2030, 28 million EVs will enter the American auto market. Meanwhile, the EPA has announced expected new emissions rules that will result in EVs attaining a roughly 60% market share of all vehicles by the same year. To power those, the U.S. will need 700,000 Level-2 chargers and 70,000 Level-3 chargers. That’s an 8-fold increase in the country’s EV charging infrastructure. In just 7 years.
To help make this possible, the federal government has allocated $5 billion over the next half-decade to increase EV charging infrastructure, promising to pay for the full installation of half a million chargers. In short, the nation’s headed straight into an era of hyperspeed growth in the EV market, and your facility needs to be ready to support it.

What questions should I be asking about EV charging infrastructure?
Answer: If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry — we’ve already asked and answered all the questions.
EV charging technology is just now becoming widely demanded, mandated and adopted. As a result, many facility owners and managers aren’t completely familiar with the details, specs and requirements of implementing EV at their facilities. At the same time, they have reasonable concerns surrounding making a significant investment in EV charging infrastructure. They worry that the EV installation market is:
- Not yet mature
- Full of jargon
- A sea of sameness
- Highly focused on software-enabled charging ports
Furthermore, EV marketing often loses track of the primary beneficiaries of the technology: EV drivers, the environment and the client’s business. Thus, facility owners and managers are uncertain on the best path forward, what sort of investment to expect and the ongoing costs and management requirements for maintaining the charging systems.
Beyond convenience, EV chargers are also helping facilities meet their green building initiatives and ESG goals, including improving air quality and reducing emissions. They’re also supporting our nation’s larger goals of creating a path to net-zero emissions by 2050 and positioning U.S. industries to lead these global efforts.
In summary, the best time to start investing in EV charging infrastructure was yesterday. The next best time is right now.
