About the report
As the world advances toward the future of clean energy emissions and countries transitioning to EVs, Arcadis has engaged with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and compiled research showcasing the five most influential categories suitable for measuring EV maturity in several countries. These categories include government leadership and incentives, charging infrastructure, returns potential, and ease of doing business with the country. This report explores the present challenges and opportunities in each of those countries when it comes to realizing their EV and infrastructure potential.
Over the decades, carbon emissions have been on the rise. As a result, countries across the globe have developed new policies and rigorous environmental regulations. These implementations by the government will serve as a strong catalyst for a global EV transition across business fleets, private use as well as the public transport sector.
EV market maturity and readiness
For investments in EVCI to work, a country needs to have a maturing EV market. Countries must have enough EVs on the road and need to be charged at public charging infrastructure for the infrastructure to generate a profit for the investors. Thus, this metric is used to categorize the country’s market maturity for EVs to understand the state of demand for charging infrastructure.
EV returns potential
As the EV market grows across the globe, investor capital that is focused on securing long-term stable revenue from the EVCI is required in greater volumes. Therefore, it is essential to get the balance right between too much infrastructure and low utilization and underprovided infrastructure versus too high utilization potentially creating “queues at the plug”.
EV charging infrastructure
The availability and accessibility of charge points will always be a major factor in the transition to EVs. The EVCI across the world has been growing at different rates and it has largely been affected by the EV market and the government incentives and leadership on offer. The charging infrastructure of a country is closely linked to its plans for supporting the adoption of EVs and the consumers will always consider the accessibility to charging points in their decision to transition to EVs.
Ease of doing business
Strong government leadership allied with a robust legal system and regulatory policies together with strong GDP per capita demonstrates potential and attractiveness to invest in a country’s growing EVCI market, thus we have included these metrics within this parameter. The venture capital and private equity effectiveness of a country is also a huge factor in determining the readiness of the country for investors to do business.
