The relationship between the increased adoption of EVs and the availability of EV charging stations is complicated. On the one hand, consumer range anxiety creates a barrier to increased adoption. 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. The good news is that both supportive policies for developing charging infrastructure and advancements in technology have eased range anxiety. For more information, see the full policy brief.
