Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment in Europe

Residential, Commercial, DC Fast Charge, and Wireless Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment: Market Analysis and Forecasts

Across Europe, plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) are being delivered by the thousands each month. The EV charging infrastructure that enables vehicles to charge at home, at the workplace, and in public spaces is simultaneously being rolled out utilizing a variety of deployment models and several different technology configurations. By 2020, Pike Research forecasts that more than 2.9 million PEVs will be on Europe’s roadways and that the region will have more than 4.1 million EV charging stations installed.
The top five European markets for EV supply equipment (EVSE) will be Germany, France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Italy, with this group representing more than 60% of the total market. The dynamics of demand for EVSE will be different in Europe than in other parts of the world; for example, residential charging equipment adoption will be slower than in North America as more EV owners will opt to use base power from a wall outlet or will rely primarily on commercial charging stations.
