The Landscape for EV Charging

This webinar was originally broadcast on 21st May 2020
Global plug-in electric vehicle (EV) population reached 7.5 million units (including light commercial vehicles) by the end of 2019. Although plug-in EV is only around 2% of global sales today, they are positioned to take the lead of road transportation in the coming decade. The availability and convenience of EV charging is essential to facilitate the uptake of plug-in EVs and the sustainable development of the plug-in EV industry. According to IDTechEx's research on electric vehicles, by 2030 there will be over 100 million plug-in EVs on road globally including passenger cars, buses, trucks and vans which are the most relevant sectors to consider for EV charging infrastructure. Among them electric passenger cars represent the largest plug-in EV sector in volume while electric fleets such as buses, trucks and vans are expected to grow rapidly in the coming decade which will drive up demand for charging infrastructure significantly.
This webinar shares some of the research from the new IDTechEx report "Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles 2020-2030". This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the major charging infrastructure including conductive charging, wireless charging and alternative solutions such as battery swapping. Under the various charging infrastructure, a detailed analysis of key EV charging technologies such as fast charging, inductive and capacitive charging, robotic and autonomous charging, off-grid charging, mobile charging and vehicle-to-home/grid (V2H/V2G) and the market trends are presented. In this report, a ten-year market forecast is provided in both unit numbers and revenues, for EV charging infrastructure. Granular market forecasts are presented by region (China, Europe, the USA and RoW), sector (passenger cars and fleet EVs), applications (private and public) and power level (AC and DC).
