The main obstacle of EV charging infrastructure – 7 points

Rate this post

EV charging infrastructure is the backbone of electrical mobility, but its limited availability and long charging time is one of the main barriers to EV adoption.

India is accelerating the installation of EV charging infra, but not so much in other regions as the European Union (EU), the United States or China.

High operating costs, disc load, uncertainty about utility rates at charging stations and non-standard EV charging charges are preventing operators from expanding their current reach.

Here is a quick snapshot of “The main obstacle to the EV charging infrastructure”

Component Deficit:

Lack of chips in the coming months could prolong the world’s sluggish transition to electric vehicles.


Lack of EV Specialists and Skills:

Lack of staff with the skills required to develop, manufacture and maintain EV and charging infrastructure.

Electricity Grid Challenges:

Grid challenges are not only about balancing the physical power of homes or maximizing energy use, but also about the domestic infrastructure. Also, smart power usage issues need to be addressed while charging.


Lithium-ion batteries:

The demand for lithium has increased, so scientists are working on reducing the need for batteries in metals that are scarce, expensive, or difficult to collect.They need to improve battery recycling so that precious metals can be reused efficiently.


EV Charging Standards:

The development of EV charging standards is an important requirement for universal accessibility and to allow EVs to be widely accepted and used as a practical alternative to ICE vehicles. Grid architecture is different in all countries which makes it difficult to reach a consensus.


On-Street Charging:

Installing an on-street charger on a busy road with a new charger can interfere with sidewalks.

Owners without driveways may have to travel to nearby streets to charge. In addition, the councils will have to provide much more chargers, which will inevitably be an additional expense.

Economic market strength:

One of the many reasons for becoming electric before 2030 is potential savings. Electricity is cheaper than petrol or diesel. Some venues such as hotels and shopping centers offer free of charge. This benefits consumers, but for business owners or local authorities, the initial cost of installing and operating a charge post makes it difficult for EV charging systems to pay for themselves quickly.
