US Charging Infrastructure Is Outpacing Forecasts, Study Finds

The United States passed an important electric vehicle milestone earlier this year. At some point during the first three months of 2021, the country installed its 100,000th EV charger. That’s according to the US Department of Energy’s Alternative Fueling Station Locator, an extremely helpful resource that tracks “ethanol (E85), biodiesel, compressed natural gas, electric vehicle (EV) charging, hydrogen, liquefied natural gas, and propane stations.”

That milestone coincided nicely with a call from President Joe Biden to build out more EV charging infrastructure. In March of this year, the Biden administration set a goal of reaching 500,000 publicly accessible EV chargers by the year 2030. (This preceded an August announcement from the White House that set a lukewarm target of half of all new cars and trucks being zero-emissions, also by 2030.)

Of course, the actual composition of those chargers is important. It’s no good having half a million places to plug in if they’re all level 1 (120 V AC) chargers that take days to top up a battery EV. But a new report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory has dug into the data, looking at trends to see whether the nation is on track to meet its goals.

Apple will stream its next hardware event to the masses on March 8 at 10 am Pacific (1 pm Eastern), the company announced today. Invitations have already been sent to the press—though the event will be yet another prerecorded, streaming-only presentation with no media in attendance. Apple marketing SVP Greg Joswiak tweeted the now-customary Apple-logo-centric teaser video that doesn’t actually tease anything.

We never know exactly what will be announced at any given Apple event, but Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that the lineup will include a refresh of the budget-friendly iPhone SE and the first iPad Air update in a little over a year.

Rumors have also circulated about updated designs and new Apple Silicon chips for the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the high-end Intel Mac Mini, the 27-inch iMac, and the Mac Pro are all still running Intel chips. The characteristically cryptic “peek performance” tagline does at least hint at new chips for one or more Macs, whether that’s a truly next-gen Apple M2 for thin-and-light laptops or an M1 Pro/Max-focused refresh for the more powerful desktops.
