 Electric vehicle charging station rollout in the US

Electric vehicle (EV) charging will become more convenient in the US, as the nation’s largest drugstore chain announced plans to offer charging stations at about 800 locations by the end of the year.  

The marcus evans 2nd Annual Electric Vehicle and Intelligent Battery Applications forum attendees may want to follow how Walgreens’ initiative will impact the industry in the US and consider how European consumers could be encouraged to embrace EVs.  

“As more American embrace environmentally sustainable technologies, our convenient locations make us uniquely positioned to help address the concern around accessibility or ‘range confidence’”, said Mark Wagner, Walgreens President of Community Management and Operations.  

According to the official press release, the Department of Energy estimates that “Walgreens will make up as much as 40% of all public EV charging stations across the country”.  

With many retail chains across Europe, similar schemes would boost support for EVs on the continent.  

The marcus evans 2nd Annual Electric Vehicle and Intelligent Battery Applications took place in Vienna, Austria, 14-16 September.  

The conference offered insights into the main challenges related to high-power, fast charging stations and smart grid systems for the vehicle-to-grid connection interface to evaluate the best strategies and potential application to reduce costs and increase vehicle’s performance.
