Electric Vehicle Charging Stations at Airport Parking Facilities

The provision of electric vehicle (EV) charging at airports is a very new and evolving practice. EV charging technology and the costs associated with providing EV charging stations are still evolving and there are still many unknowns, conflicting information, and speculation about this new practice. Purchases of EVs are increasing throughout the United States, with the West Coast states accounting for a disproportionately high number. Research undertaken for this report has shown that at least 37 airports in the United States are providing EV charging stations, most commonly in short-term or long-term parking facilities, and usually with no fee for charging. The report presents a primer on EV charging and includes information to understand the policy approaches, infrastructure needs, and funding mechanisms that airports have used in EV hosting. This report (1) summarizes the state of the EV industry and motivations for airport sponsors to provide EV charging stations, (2) identifies current EV charging technologies, and (3) describes effective practices for installing EV charging stations at airports in terms of finances, planning, implementation, and operation of the charging stations. This report is intended to help airport management staff, specifically those environmental, parking, and facilities managers who may be interested in installed EV charging stations.
