EV Charging Set to Change the Way We Deal with Our Power Grids

Everybody is talking about EV charging stations, and about the expanding network of locations across the country coming on line to meet the new demands of electric vehicles.  While the news is exciting for EV owners and those thinking about purchasing an EV, the progress toward a more diversified transportation fleet takes time.

The country’s electric grid network is the subject of growing focus as states, cities, and businesses begin rolling out more EV charging locations.  As it happens, there is more to the job of establishing a nationwide network of EV charging stations than one might immediately think.

A recent article from the business publication MarketScale points out that an expanded network of EV charging facilities will definitely require some planning to avoid disruption to the nation’s electric grid.  In addition to a measured approach, the article advocates for the provision of additional energy storage devices and the latest DC to AC power converters.

The biggest takeaway from the MarketScale article is that with National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) funding set to start rolling out soon, now is the time to shore up our national power grid to support changes to the way we get down the road.  

Even as states, cities, and individual business owners embrace the practical and financial potential of EV charging, the country still has work to do to make sure our power grid is capable of meeting the new requirements we are now placing on it.  So, like everything else in life, the change happens while the awareness of the consequences is only just becoming apparent.  We have lots of work to do!

Businesses Need to Act Now

Another key takeaway from the article is that creative partnerships are critical for business owners to take advantage of the EV charging station land rush.  Profit-sharing charging applications and creative financing opportunities are some of the hottest trends for facility owners looking to cash in on the revenue-generating opportunities associated with EV charging stations.

Business owners should remember that advances in EV charging technology and connectivity have allowed EV charging stations to become reliable, long-term revenue generators for large commercial enterprises such as major retailers, restaurants, hotels, and special event venues.  Today, even smaller businesses with individual locations are cashing in on the opportunities that flow from EV charging.
