Accelerating the EV Revolution

By Mwikisa Kanguya

As worries about climate change and environmental sustainability grow, governments, businesses, and consumers are turning to electric vehicles as a cleaner alternative to conventional internal combustion engines. However, the establishment of a strong charging infrastructure that can accommodate the rising demand for electric transportation is a prerequisite for the broad adoption of EVs. 

By bringing new ideas to the field of electric car charging infrastructure, entrepreneurs are, in this sense, significantly contributing to the acceleration of the EV revolution. With the goal of resolving the issues around EV charging, these startups are upending the existing quo by offering innovative technology, business strategies, and solutions.

In recent years, there has been a notable increase in the electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure market, which is a quickly developing industry. The market was valued at USD 25.65 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow rapidly to over USD 384.4 billion by 2032. With a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31.09% between 2023 and 2032, this impressive rise highlights the growing global usage of electric vehicles and the related need for effective charging options.

We highlight 4 startups that are working towards resolving the challenges around EV charging:
