Making charging technology simpler and more efficient—and educating builders about it—will help accelerate demand for electric vehicles.
Electric car sales are on the rise. A recent study by the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research (ZSW) revealed that an additional 320,000 new electric vehicles (EVs) were registered across the globe in 2014, taking the total number of EVs on the road up to 740,000. The organization estimates that if the market continues to grow at their projected 76 percent rate, EVs will soon be in the garages of one million people. Bosch Automotive Service Solutions is working to help simplify the lives of these future electric car owners by pushing for EV charging stations to become a standard feature in new consumer homes.
