While the doomsayers have been predicting and rejoicing for several months about the possible stoppage of the electric car in several markets – and of course in poor Spain, always behind -, other voices in the sector are ignoring the sinister siren songs and asserting that, as it seems inevitable, mobility based on the use of batteries will be huge It will experience a qualitative leap in the near future.
The vision you need to know, no matter what is on one side, is shared by Juice Technology, which is considered one of the world’s leading companies in the development of electric vehicle charging solutions. The Swiss firm predicts that the percentage of new fully electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) will increase to 50% in 2025 and 80% by 2030, at least in Europe and the United States.
These very optimistic forecasts are based on the belief that in the “near future” it is possible for energy prices to fall and the availability of variable energy rates to increase, the latter associated with an increase in the share of energy. renewable energy Mix it up energetic. Thus, Juice concludes, “electric mobility will be even more profitable than other forms of propulsion.”
he take off The growth of electric vehicles is also linked to the increasing availability of attractively priced BEV models created by new Chinese, American and other Asian electric vehicle manufacturers.
As the transition to electric mobility accelerates, the charging infrastructure market will experience intense growth in the coming years. In particular, the company claims that the demand for technologies equipped with intelligent charge management, which allows the energy supplied to electric vehicles, will also grow “very dynamically”. travel Back to the net.
Lars Thomsen, member of the board of directors of Juice Technology and founder of the think tank Future Matters, expects a progressive increase in the market share of supplement machines by 2024. According to him, its development has been somewhat hindered in the last two years due to market turbulence, problems in the supply chain and energy price fluctuations.
It appears that the dampening effect of rising interest rates and inflation has bottomed out. Fluctuating investment postures are limited to a few individual regional markets and consumer channels, Thomsen says, and overall “e-mobility can be seen as continuing momentum.”
Power in the business channel
Juice is pleased – after all, its business depends on it – that, while earlier electric models attracted mainly private customers, today there are clear signs of growth in companies, fleets and the commercial sector. These new market segments “offer many opportunities for new manufacturers and charging technology specialists.” As a result, “with these capabilities comes a series of new application scenarios that must be covered and user requirements that must be met.”
The central European company predicts that BEVs will become increasingly important in commercial fleets in the coming years. Its share of new registrations will increase from the current 10% or 15% to 45% by the end of 2025. This trend, which covers all sectors of the business fleet (from company cars to utility vehicles and rental cars), is based on being environmentally friendly. Considerations such as ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) commitments and CO2 reduction targets and economic considerations where savings stand out due to lower cost of ownership.
According to managed data, more than 400,000 new electric vehicles are expected to be added to rental and company fleets alone in the next two years.
Future Matters does not hide and claims that the scenario described so far can be threatened only “if unfavorable political measures are taken or if intense influence is exerted by pressure groups, for example, the oil and gas industry, in particular. Impairment or suspension of electric mobility”.
