Lexington Institute -- BACKUP CHARGING IS ESSENTIAL FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES (From InsideSources)
Backup Charging Is Essential As More Electric Vehicles Are Adopted
A recent analysis from Bloomberg New Energy Finance suggests that EVs could
account for half of all new cars sold by 2040. This begs the following
question: as electric cars become more popular, how would a driver charge an
EV when electricity is unavailable?
The aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico demonstrates the potential
devastating consequences of not having electricity for an extended period of
time. Thus, backup charging infrastructure is necessary so that EVs are able
to operate when power is unaccessible.
