The 8 Big EV Charging Gaps to Urgently Address, and How to do it Right Now

The 8 Big EV Charging Gaps to Urgently Address, and How to do it Right Now

Charging an EV should always be completely boring, yet we know it isn’t. However, it’s the only way to create a great EV experience, as, people remember their disasters, which slows adoption.

Below are 8 situations that must be addressed to make the charging experience completely ubiquitous and hassle free.

1. Charging for Garage Orphans (Apartments, and Street Parking)
This is a very common problem as in the USA and Canada over 35% of households live in apartment buildings, most of which have no charging access. Occasionally, 1 or 2 chargers may be installed, or a condo may offer residents charging installation, but often at $5,000 or more.

2. Multi Vehicle Fleet Charging
A problematic issue for some fleets is long lead times to install multi vehicle charging infrastructure, particularly if there is a site or grid distribution limitation. Waiting times of 24 months or longer are not unheard of, which restricts potential EV fleet purchases.

3. Roadside Assistance
What happens if you simply miscalculate or the charger is out, and the car dies? You are stuck. You’ll need to call a tow truck at significant expense to haul you to a charger. Or better yet, you need someone to come give you a small charge to get you going.

4. Out Of Time
Sometimes there’s not enough time to charge the vehicle for a long trip. The nearest charger is out the way and/or, it will be a wait at the charger. How can this get done quickly?

5. Charging Desert
This situation has happened to me. There is simply no way to get to a charger without it being hugely inconvenient.

6. Charging Outage
This one is common – the charger you were relying on is broken or malfunctioning. What happens now?

7. Industrial and Construction Machinery on Remote Work Sites
It’s not just cars. How do you get a charge to a non-powered work site that uses electric machinery, such as diggers and excavators? Right now, it’s difficult.

8. Electric Recreational Products
What about electric boats or electric snowmobiles or dirt bikes? Most marinas don’t have quick charging to keep you on the water, nor the trails just happen to have a charger handy.

Yet, for all these cases, there’s a potential opportunity – the charge comes to you. Mobile charging, where a truck or van with a large battery can charge a vehicle, is a way to quickly plug gaps and alleviate disasters. It also creates new opportunities to service electric machinery and recreational vehicles.
