New York State has set the ambitious goal to have two million electric vehicles (EVs) on the road by the year 2030 and invested in several educational and incentive programs across multiple state agencies to accelerate EV market growth. Because vehicle purchase decisions are frequently based on the availability of existing charging infrastructure, any delays in the commissioning of new charging infrastructure will reduce the rate of EV market growth and jeopardize the fulfillment of New York’s EV goals. One of the barriers noted for the growth of EVs has been the relatively slow charging capability of the existing charging infrastructure. Recently, a much more rapid method has been developed, called Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC).
