Why Housing Will Determine the EV Charging Market

One factor that will help influence how the EV charging market will develop is the makeup of the housing market in a region. The kind of dwelling people live in – a single-family home or a multi-unit dwelling (MUD) – will to a great degree determine their need for residential and public charging infrastructure.

Single family homes are much more likely to have a garage or dedicated parking spot where installing an EV charger would be relatively convenient. EV owners who can charge overnight and only pay for the electricity will do the vast majority of their charging at home, and so their inclination to pay for charging around town will be minimal.

While some apartment complexes see EV charging as an important amenity to offer their customers, it’s much more challenging to install chargers in multi-unit dwellings. As a new study from UCLA’s Luskin Center for Innovation shows, both physical and regulatory hurdles will force some EV drivers who aren’t homeowners to rely primarily on public charging.
