Reducing Soft Costs in Conductive Charging Infrastructure

Chris Nelder
“Soft costs” such as permitting costs, siting costs, utility interconnection application costs, opportunity costs, the cost of delays, and so on create significant overhead for EV charging station network operators. Those costs are ultimately passed on to EV drivers, making it more difficult for EVs to reach cost parity with ICE equivalents. But the soft costs of deploying charging infrastructure are poorly understood, unpredictable, very hard to quantify, and almost entirely undocumented in the literature....
