Charging infrastructure statistics

Growth in AC and DCFC public charging installations between 2020 and 2021

Covers ZEVTC and other major markets. ICCT research suggests that public charging infrastructure will need to grow by about 30% annually to enable continued EV deployment toward 100% ZEVs.

Source: ICCT research, please see the table below for further information.

Notes: California and India do not have 2020 data. India does not have separate AC and DCFC installation data.

Public chargers installed by country and charger type in 2020 and 2021. For select countries, aggregate and average charging capacities are also provided.
