New York City Wants More EVs but Needs to Find Space for Chargers

Joseph Chow discussed the challenges of installing EV chargers in NYC to meet the city's demand for more electric vehicles by 2030 with the Wall Street Journal. Drivers in New York largely rely on street parking and lack homes with driveways or garages where they could install private chargers. As a result, it will need thousands of additional public charging locations to spur wider EV adoption. So far, fewer than 1% of vehicles registered in the city are electric, according to state data.

“New York City wants to add 10,000 streetside chargers for use overnight or while people are at work. That presents challenges because drivers never know exactly where they will luck into a parking spot,” he said.

Roundtable on Traffic Safety Research

February 21, 2023 | 4pm | Hybrid

C2SMART Viz Lab - 6 MetroTech, Brooklyn

Virtual on Zoom

The increasing popularity of smart cities and recent developments in sensing, edge computing and vehicle technologies and the availability of “big data” combined with sophisticated AI techniques offer an opportunity to substantially advance and fundamentally transform the road safety profession—enabling continuous, real-time, proactive safety evaluation and optimization. The application of innovations that are both progressing and disrupting the status quo represents an opportunity for improved transportation safety. However, with the introduction of new modes of mobility and the complex interactions created by these different technologies within the transportation system, governments will need to rely on advanced research and analysis techniques to support policies towards the transition to these new forms of mobility and technologies.
