The U.S. will need at least 1.8 million electric vehicle charging stations by 2030 as the number of EVs on the road grows to more than 18 million, but EV charging needs will vary greatly by state and locality, per a report released this month by the the non-advocacy research organization Fuels Institute’s Electric Vehicle Council.

Americans nationwide will likely face higher electric bills to pay for the next stage of the country’s electric vehicle (EV) charger buildout — even if they don’t drive an EV.
Why it matters: The U.S. will need a massive investment in public charging infrastructure to match the anticipated spike in EV demand. But such capital outlays don’t make economic sense for many companies until there are more EVs on the road — which won’t happen until there are more chargers.

The United States has around 150,000 fuel stations to refill its fleet of fossil-fuel-burning vehicles. Despite the rapid growth of all-electric vehicles in America—400,000 of them were sold in 2021, up from barely 10,000 in 2012—the country has only 6,000 DC fast electric charging stations, the kind that can rapidly juice up a battery-powered car. (It has more than 48,000 charging stations of all kinds.)
