An electric vehicle (EV) is charged by plugging a large battery pack into a public charging station or a home garage wall outlet.
Home charging stations can be installed by home owners when they purchase an electric vehicle. The infrastructure for charging when away from home, however, needs to be built in advance of the growing demand for charging on the go.
Norway is leading the world in public electric charging stations–with 350 per 100,000 people. Sweden comes in second with 100 charging stations per 100,000 people.
In the US, Vermont is leading the way with 125 EV ports per 100,000 people. Other states with high rates include Washington D.C., California, Hawaii, and Colorado.
Growth of ports is most rapid in Oklahoma, North Dakota, and Michigan.
