Abstract Oregon has more DC Fast Chargers (DCFC) for electric vehicles per capita than any other US region. This network has played a major role in making Oregon one of the strongest markets for electric vehicle sales in the US, despite the lack of a state purchase incentive. This paper summarizes Oregon’s experience with fast charging, evaluates the impact of this network, proposes new ways of defining network “success,” and makes recommendations for cost effectively expanding the network. These findings and recommendations should help inform other regions that are just beginning to build out their fast charging networks.
