    Re: What is EV charging used for?

    The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE International) defines the general physical, electrical, communication, and performance requirements for EV charging systems used in North America, as part of standard SAE J1772, initially developed in 2001.[8] SAE J1772 defines four levels of charging, two levels each for AC and DC supplies; the differences between levels are based upon the power distribution type, standards and maximum power.

    As of December 2012, around 50,000 non-residential charging points were deployed in the U.S., Europe, Japan and China. As of August 2014, some 3,869 CHAdeMO quick chargers were deployed, with 1,978 in Japan, 1,181 in Europe and 686 in the United States, and 24 in other countries. As of December 2021 the total number of public and private EV charging stations was over 57,000 in the United States and Canada combined.

    Re: What is EV charging used for?

    EV charging is used to charge the batteries of electric vehicles (EVs) so that they can operate. EVs are powered by rechargeable batteries, which store electrical energy used to power the vehicle's motor. EV charging adds electrical energy to these batteries, typically from an external power source such as a charging station or an electric outlet.

    EV charging is necessary because EVs rely on stored electrical energy, unlike conventional vehicles that run on gasoline or diesel fuel. Without sufficient charge, an EV cannot run or travel significantly. Thus, EV charging is a crucial aspect of owning an electric vehicle, as it enables EV drivers to keep their vehicles running and capable of longer travel distances. Additionally, charging EVs with electricity instead of fossil fuels helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, making EVs a more environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional cars.
