Estimates suggest the U.S. will need an additional 15 to 27 terawatt hours of electricity by 2050 to power electric vehicles (EVs) – about 0.5% of current capacity. Experts say the one challenge that may arise could be a lack of

access to home chargers: A four-plug, high-speed charging station can pull enough power to supply hundreds of homes.

Renewable energy is expected to provide 18% of the world’s power by 2030. Energy storage can also be applied to EV charging stations where it can be used to manage peak demand and reduce “grid congestion.”
