This paper discusses the recent National Academies’ study Overcoming Barriers to Deployment of Plug-in Electric Vehicles. The study committee concluded that, if policy makers continue to pursue PEV deployment, continuing federal funding for battery research and purchase tax credits is important to reduce vehicle cost. The committee also considered federal investments in deploying charging infrastructure. It recommended further study to understand the relationship between infrastructure and vehicle deployment and use before additional direct federal investment in charging infrastructure installation.
