Building Out The Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure: Greenlots Advocates For Open Standards – Forbes

North America is at a critical point in making some decisions about its electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, and how proprietary its charging networks will ultimately be. The choices made could affect drivers for years to come. These decisions need to be made soon because of the unexpectedly rapid rate of EV adoption.

EV sales have jumped from a mere 17,500 in 2011 to 53,000 in 2012, then catapulted to 96,000 in 2013, and that trend is just beginning.
