Electric vehicles (EVs) have advanced significantly this decade, owing in part to decreasing battery costs. Yet EVs remain more costly than gasoline fueled vehicles over their useful life. This paper analyzes the additional advances that will be needed, if electric vehicles are to significantly penetrate the passenger vehicle fleet. 
The Economics of Electric Vehicles and the Need for a Public Policy
Electric vehicles (EVs) are an emerging technology in today’s transportation industry. EVs and charging infrastructure are not only complementary, but also the elements of an ecosystem. The economic
Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure: From Grid to Battery
During the coming decades, electrification is expected to reach further and deeper into the transportation, building, and industry sectors, mainly motivated by the energy transition to a zero-carbonemission-based economy to mitigate climate change.
