Electric Vehicle Charging: Convenience, Reliability, Accessibility, & Future Needs (CleanTechnica EV Driver Report)

June 5th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

It was with a great degree of curiosity that we explored EV charging experiences and needs by type of EV and region for our latest EV report. What's the story for Tesla drivers, non-Tesla fully electric car drivers, and plug-in hybrid drivers? What's the story for Americans vs Europeans? We already covered the desire and demand for fast charging and superfast charging in a previous section, but we dive much more into other charging matters here.

Energy from Braking Trains Used to Charge Electric Vehicles

That last line might not seem so silly in the near future. In fact, the managers of Spain’s railway infrastructure (the ADIF, for Administrador de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias) have already pulled off a bit of a coup in electric vehicle charging tech when, a few days ago, a group of engineers succeeded in converting the kinetic energy produced by the the ADIF’s commuter trains under braking to charge electric cars. The “proof-of-concept” demonstration took place May 23rd, fully charging a Th!nk City car using only electricity generated by the train’s brakes
