MRRSE The electric vehicle charging station market report provides analysis for the period 2015–2025, wherein the period from 2017 to 2025 is the forecast period and 2016 is the base year. The report covers all the major trends and technologies playing a key role in electric vehicle charging station market growth over the forecast period. It also highlights the drivers, restraints, and opportunities expected to influence market’s growth during the said period. The study provides a holistic perspective on the electric vehicle charging station market’s growth throughout the above mentioned forecast period in terms of revenue and volume (in US$ Mn and Thousand units), across different geographies, including Asia Pacific, South America, North America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa (MEA).
The Cadillac Supercharger is one of 17 located at Meijers in six Midwest states, part of a network of 13 in Michigan. There are several more coming online soon, and three just across the border in Indiana and Ohio.
The stations are designed for road trippers rather than residents, who typically charge their vehicles at home.
“Normally I had to go to a gas station every single week,” Vogt said. “Now I only have to go somewhere besides my home when I’m going on a long trip.”
Meijer spokesperson Joe Hirschmugl said the charging stations are ideal for the retail setting.
"On average, our customers take about 45 minutes to shop," he said. "You can do a week's shopping here and drive away with a fully-charged car.
Lithium batteries are 100% recyclable and repairable and good for 6-8 years to 80%
Charging is done mostly off hours and in fact there are programs already where owners can feed 40% of their battery power back into the grid during peak hours - it will be good for an aging grid.
Lithium battery plants are excessively clean tech. The impact is actually the fossil fuel used to deliver raw materials.
There are thousands of charging stations already in place and more every day
High powered ones charge in 20 minutes to 80% and Tesla has both a 10 minute unit in development and an automated battery swap station patented.
Lithium mining ... one of the most energy consuming operations and not so environment friendly.Lithium battery plants are excessively clean tech. The impact is actually the fossil fuel used to deliver raw materials.
What about electric cars in PR? Electricity isn't exactly a monopoly, you could put a PV site on the roof of your home and charge from that. I can't think of anything more off-the-grid. Do you have a refinery in your back yard, or is your plan woodgas if you become an enemy of the state?Ask the people on Puerto Rico their thoughts on electric cars. The electric car is just another infringement on privacy and liberty. Unpaid parking ticket? No charging for you. Just sayin.
A buddy of mine has a Zero. It was a really cool experience riding it - no clutch, almost silent. You just give the throttle a twist, and it starts nudging you forward.That is a good point about obtaining gas in a catastrophe. I hear electric bikes are amazing, but I am unsure about the battery technology and the charging efficiency. You ride one now? What is the charge time at various voltages and amperage? The amount of energy folded up in a gallon of fuel is pretty amazing to me. How it got there and the environmental impacts of extracting and burning are not zero but neither are the impacts for EVs.
Even taking into account the better efficiency of EV's (not entirely realized due to inefficiency of charging and self-discharging of batteries), we'll be replacing 143 BILLION gallons of gasoline burned per year, at 33 KWH per gallon. That's a whole lot of electricity. While it is possible that residential installation of solar cells can pick up a large part of this (and, in fact, will work with the car's battery to store power for night time use) the power industry's real hope for a future is that demand will expand, so there will still be a need for at least some central power production and distribution. Yeas, they will charge at off-peak hours, but current levels of power production will not suffice.You ARE wrong - EVs do not require massive new sources of power. In fact they are a storage resource making existing power - notably making renewables far more efficient because they store additional power and let grids load level.
