The electrification of vehicles is a key factor for future mobility that would exponentially increase the demand for charging current. This article presents a PSA Groupe vision for demand-driven mobile vehicle-charging concepts focused on global charging and customer requirements as well as infrastructure challenges.

Electrification and Challenges for Charging Infrastructure

As CO2 regulatory pressure grows and electrified vehicles prices decline over the next decade, market is forecasted to grow exponentially. This would result in huge demand of charging infrastructure: According to a McKinsey study, there would be 140 million electrified vehicles in the four regions China, Europe, India and the USA by 2030 requiring a total electric charge demand of 300 billion kWh (equivalent to 69 billion euros electricity costs at 0.23 euro/kWh) [1].

To meet this huge demand, a cumulative capital investment of 47 billion euros is forecasted primarily in stationary charging stations. The EU and...
