Coalition Looking to Create EV Charging Network

National Electric Highway Coalition Looks to Create Fast EV Charging by End of 2023

The National Electric Highway Coalition is looking to create more open availability of fast EV charging stations across the country by the end of 2023 to fuel greater interest in the next generation of driving.

The newly created National Electric Highway Coalition seeks to create a national network of fast electric vehicle charging ports by 2023 to build greater confidence.

The coalition, which is created by 51 investor-owned electric companies, an electric cooperative, and the Tennessee Valley Authority, estimates that the country will need more than 100,000 EV fast charging ports to support the 22 million EVs expected to operate on U.S. roads by 2030. It is estimated that Edison Electric Institute companies have invested more than $3 billion in EV charging infrastructure projects and other programs to date.

"With the formation of the National Electric Highway Coalition, we are committed to investing in and providing the charging infrastructure necessary to facilitate electric vehicle growth and to helping alleviate any remaining customer range anxiety," EEI president, Tom Kuhn explained, "By merging and expanding the existing efforts underway to build fast charging infrastructure along major travel corridors, we are building a foundational EV charging network that will help to encourage more customers to purchase an electric vehicle."
