The relationship between increased adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and the availability of EV charging stations has been described as a “chicken or the egg” problem. On one hand, consumer range anxiety creates an important barrier to increased adoption of EVs. On the other hand, while greater availability of charging stations would ease this anxiety, the relatively low numbers of vehicles on the road provides little incentive to install and make these stations available to the public. There are a number of programs that states can adopt to support charging stations. For more information, see the full policy brief.
