The surge in the electric vehicle (EV) market is sparking over $500 million in investments in the U.S. since 2021. This boom goes beyond new EV and battery factories, extending to the establishment of more than 40 EV charger plants, according to data from the Department of Energy.

The Vehicle Technologies Office at DOE highlights the extensive investment in various EV charging equipment, ranging from Level 2 AC charging points to DC fast chargers, and even a few wireless charging systems. The diverse range of facilities, whether announced, under construction, or in the pipeline, is neatly visualized on the DOE’s Building America’s Clean Energy Future website.

This hefty investment is set to generate over 3,000 new jobs, not just in manufacturing but also in installation and maintenance. The EV charging market is in a pivotal moment, gearing up for a transition to the new dominant charging standard in North America – Tesla’s NACS, soon to be standardized by SAE.

NACS is poised to replace existing charging systems for light-duty electric vehicles, consolidating various standards into a single plug. Manufacturers and new factories are gearing up for this shift, developing products that will temporarily support existing standards. Beyond offering new car choices, the electric vehicle revolution is proving to be a significant player in America’s economic landscape.
