ByBox’s Strategic Approach to Enhancing Public Charging Networks

The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) marks a significant shift in the automotive industry, steering us towards a more sustainable future. However, the reliability of public EV charging networks has surfaced as a crucial factor influencing consumer confidence and, by extension, the broader adoption of EVs.

Customers have a high expectation of EVs with near-flawless reliability; especially since, unlike petrol stations—which offer multiple alternatives if one is closed—options for EVs are more limited. Arriving at a charging station only to find the charging points faulty or unusable can leave drivers stranded.

Unfortunately, these issues have become increasingly common. A report by J.D. Power highlighted that over 20% of EV drivers encountered charging failures due to equipment malfunctions or connectivity issues at public stations, a significant concern for potential EV buyers, as highlighted by Ford CEO Jim Farley, who terms it ‘charging anxiety (1).

These challenges underscore the importance of reliable charging infrastructure to foster wider EV adoption. Notably, a study identified station connectivity and internal faults as the primary culprits behind charging session failures, emphasising the need for robust solutions to mitigate these issues.
