According to the International Energy Agency’s (“IEA”) projections, there will be 200 million electric vehicles worldwide by 2030, with an exponential growth rate in the coming years. In 2016, new registrations of electric cars hit a new record, with over 750 thousand sales worldwide. With a 29% market share, Norway has incontestably achieved the most successful deployment of electric cars in terms of market share, globally. It is followed by the Netherlands, with a 6.4% electric car market share, and Sweden with 3.4%. The People’s Republic of China, France, and the United Kingdom all have electric car market shares close to 1.5% and rising.
This fundamental evolution in the way we move people and goods creates a broad need for electric vehicle infrastructure. Public and private networks of charging stations must be built to serve the expanding electric car market. Electrical supply systems must be upgraded, and retail locations, malls, supermarkets, and office buildings must prepare to meet the needs of their visitors by offering EV charging services. In time, the charging stations will also become a significant revenue source, much as petrol stations are today.
The rise of electric vehicles will also create the need for massive new electrical capacity, much of which will need to come from renewable sources.
