This was the headline that caught my eye over my first cup of coffee this morning. If anyone doubts the rapid transition to EVs then this should make them sit up and take note. Keep in mind this comes just after the recent article in The Guardian that Japan now has more EV charging points than petrol stations (40,000 vs 35,000). Not only does this transform our transport landscape, but makes second life stationary storage projects a very obvious growth sector too. The world is changing before our eyes. As the folks at Younicos say, 'Let the fossils rest in peace.'
“ChargePoint’s mission is to get everyone behind the wheel of an EV,” stated Pasquale Romano, ChargePoint’s CEO. “We’ve been busy building the network that’s necessary for EVs to become mainstream. As the demand for EV charging continues to surge, charging infrastructure expands and gas stations disappear, it won’t be long before drivers start suffering from ‘gas anxiety,’ not range anxiety. As the largest charging network, we are enabling the EV revolution and changing the experience of refueling.”
