Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Trends

The U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fueling Station Locator contains information on public and private non-residential alternative fueling stations in the United States and Canada and currently tracks ethanol (E85), biodiesel, compressed natural gas, electric vehicle (EV) charging, hydrogen, liquefied natural gas, and propane stations. Of these fuels, EV charging continues to experience rapidly changing technology and growing infrastructure.

The quarterly reports on EV charging infrastructure trends from the Alternative Fueling Station Locator provide snapshots of the state of EV charging infrastructure in the United States. Using data from the Station Locator, these reports break down the growth of public and private charging infrastructure by charging level, network, and location. Additionally, beginning in the First Quarter 2023, these reports measure progress towards meeting the projected public charging needs cited in the 2030 National Charging Network: Estimating U.S. Light-Duty Demand for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure report.

These reports are intended to help transportation planners, policymakers, researchers, infrastructure developers, and other transportation stakeholders understand the rapidly changing landscape for EV charging.
