This is the third Lessons Learnt Report for Electric Highway Tasmania’s (EHT’s) Future Fuels Project. This report discusses some alternate approaches to managing the costs of developing viable charging sites.
Economies of scale or economies of opportunity? To achieve commercial viability, EV charging sites need to be cost effective. Depreciation of equipment and site development costs are a major part of the total cost of providing an EV fast charger. This paper discusses some alternate approaches to manage these costs to develop viable charging sites and proposes a strategy to combine the best of both approaches.
