ANALYSIS OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR RECHARGING ELECTRIC VEHICLES

The mobility of the existing personal-vehicle fleet is provided by a refueling infrastructure consisting of petroleum refiners, diistributors, and service stations. This paper identifies the equivalent infrastructure that would be required to support a fleet of electric vehicles (EV), and analyzes the current status in the United States of its major components. The components include the electric utility companies, the types of dwellings at which it would be practical to recharge electric vehicles overnight, and methos for providing range extension.
