The California Statewide Plug-In Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Assessment conveys to interested parties the Energy Commission’s conclusions, recommendations, and intentions with respect to plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) infrastructure development. There are several relatively low-risk and high-priority electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) deployment options that will encourage PEV sales and increase electric miles (e-miles) driven by PEVs. These include homes where PEVs exist; workplaces and multiunit dwellings where management has indicated support for PEVs and surveys indicate a high likelihood of use of charging infrastructure; garaged fleets with significant numbers of PEVs; and airports and locations near public transportation, provided certain conditions are met. Corridor charging, destination charging, and workplace or multiunit dwelling locations without management support and/or conclusive surveys are also being pursued and will prove valuable for future PEV market growth. Corridor and remote destination charging options can help increase driver range confidence and electric miles driven, though their relative importance is difficult to assess compared to other EVSE deployment options. Priorities may be shifted or refined over time as the market evolves and new data become available.
