30–31 January 2024 4th EV Charging Infrastructure Summit
Los Angeles, CA, USA
The Edison Electric Institute estimates approximately 9.6 million charge points will be needed in the U.S. by the end of the decade to support an estimated 18.7 million EVs on the road. As of April 2023, there were 136,513 charging ports at 53,764,000 public and private stations, according to the U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels Data Center. This significant increase in EV charging infrastructure will have important implications for the grid, and present stakeholders with significant challenges and opportunities.
