The all-electric automotive future is fast approaching, and Japan is leading the way.


The Japan Times reports that the country now has more charge  ev stations than gas stations. This fact comes from Nissan, which said that there are now 40,000 fast-charging stations around the island nation. This outpaces the country’s 34,000 gas stations by a good margin. It should be noted that this figure includes charging stations both on the streets and in homes.

This is great news for Nissan, as the increased availability promises to make its all-electric Leaf even more attractive to Japanese buyers. The Leaf can travel 107 miles on a single charge, and with so many charge points, range anxiety should diminish.
Granted, this number is greatly skewed by including charge  ev stations inside private garages. But that may soon change as well. PlugShare is a website that maps out charging stations across the world, including private ones available for public use. Think of it as Airbnb for car charging. If this concept takes off, then car charging will gain the benefits of the sharing economy.

As for actual charging stations, there are a 6,469 CHAdeMO DC quick chargers in Japan. That number may look small, but compared to Europe’s 3,028 or the 1,686 in the U.S., Japan still far outpaces the rest of the world. If things continue to go this way, then Japan will be on track to have 2 million charging stations by 2020, with 50 percent of new car sales being green.

Japan has been aggressive with tax breaks and subsidies for buyers willing to make a more environmentally conscious purchase. Even Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe boasted that as much as 3 million yen ($27,937) could be offered as subsidies to buyers. With incentives this generous, it’s easy to see why Japan has done so well in the EV space.

With Tesla aggressively pushing its all-electric vehicles in the U.S., incentives could also expand for American buyers.




Charging Equipment

Charging equipment for plug-in electric vehicles (PHEVs or EVs) is classified by the rate at which the batteries are charged. Charging times vary based on how depleted the battery is, how much energy it holds, the type of battery, and the type of EVSE. The charging time can range from 15 minutes to 20 hours or more, depending on these factors.

AC Level 1 Charging

2 to 5 miles of range per 1 hour of charging

  • J1772 charge port
  • AC Level 1 EVSE (often referred to simply as Level 1) provides charging through a 120 volt (V) AC plug. Most, if not all, plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) will come with an AC Level 1 EVSE cordset so no additional charging equipment is required. On one end of the cord is a standard NEMA connector, (for example, a NEMA 5-15, which is a common three-prong household plug) and on the other end is a SAE J1772 standard connector. The SAE J1772 connector plugs into the car’s J1772 charge port and the NEMA connector plugs into a standard NEMA wall outlet.
  • AC Level 1 is typically used for charging when there is only a 120V outlet available, but can easily provide all of a driver’s needs. For example, 8 hours of charging at 120V can replenish about 40 miles of electric range.

AC Level 2 Charging

10 to 20 miles of range per 1 hour of charging

J1772 charge port

AC Level 2 equipment (often referred to simply as Level 2) offers charging through 240V (typical in residential applications) or 208V (typical in commercial applications) electrical service. Most homes have 240V service available, and because AC Level 2 EVSE can charge a typical EV battery overnight, they will commonly be installed at EV owners’ homes for home charging or are used for public charging equipment. This charging option can operate at up to 80 amperes and 19.2 kW. However, most residential AC Level 2 EVSE will operate at lower power. Many such units operate at up to 30 amperes, delivering 7.2 kW of power. These units require a dedicated 40 amp circuit.

AC Level 2 equipment uses the same SAE J1772 connector and charge port that Level 1 equipment uses. All commercially available PEVs have the ability to charge using AC Level 1 and AC Level 2 charging equipment. Although Tesla vehicles do not have a J1772 charge port, they do sell an adapter.

DC Fast Charging

  • 50 to 70 miles of range per
    20 minutes of charging
  • J1772
  • CHAdeMO
  • Tesla

Direct-current (DC) fast charging equipment, sometimes called DC Level 2 (typically 208/480V AC three-phase input), enables rapid charging along heavy traffic corridors at installed stations. There are three types of DC fast charging systems, depending on the type of charge port on the vehicle: a J1772 combo, CHAdeMO, or Tesla.

  • The J1772 combo is used by Chevrolet and BMW and is unique because a driver can use the same charge port when charging with Level 1, 2, or DC Fast equipment. The only difference is that the DC Fast connector has two bottom pins.
  • The CHAdeMO is the most common of the three connector types and is used by Nissan, Mitsubishi, Toyota, and Fuji.
  • Tesla vehicles have a unique charge port and connector that works for all their charging options including their fast charging option, called a supercharger.

Future AC Charging Options

An additional standard (SAE J3068) is under development for higher rates of AC charging using three-phase power, which is common at commercial and industrial locations in the United States. Some components of the standard will be adapted from the European three-phase charging standards and specified for North American AC grid voltages and requirements. In the U.S., the common three-phase voltages are typically 208/120 V, 480/277 V. The standard will target power levels between 6kW and 130kW.

Inductive Charging or Online EV

Inductive charging equipment, which uses an electromagnetic field to transfer electricity to a PEV without a cord, has been recently introduced commercially for installation as an aftermarket add-on. Currently available wireless charging stations operate at power levels comparable to AC Level 2.


According to a recent report from Navigant Research, global revenue from communications equipment and services associated with electric vehicle (EV) charging networks is expected to total more than $3.5 billion from 2015 to 2024.

“The market for PEV charging equipment is still quite young, but the growing base of PEVs and government efforts to encourage their spread will support millions of connected charging stations over the next decade,” says Richelle Elberg, principal research analyst with Navigant Research. “Eventually, connected charging sites will become points that allow drivers to charge their vehicles remotely and could hold other potential uses, such as utility-driven demand response programs.”

The residential market for charging stations is the largest of the EVSE installation types worldwide and many PEV owners purchase their own charging station alongside their vehicle, according to the report. However, to date, few of these stations have communications capabilities; as a result, clusters of unconnected chargers can wreak havoc on a local utility’s grid infrastructure and load curve, and PEV owners are oftentimes left unaware of EV-specific rates or other programs that could drive down their bill.

The report, Communications Technologies for EV Charging Networks, examines the outlook for PEV and EVSE infrastructure and associated communications equipment and services. The study outlines regional considerations and describes the connectivity requirements for four segments of charging sites: residential, workplace, public, and private/fleet. Global market forecasts for communications equipment and services tied to EVSE infrastructure extend through 2024. The report also examines the major categories of communications technologies employed in EVSE networks, as well as the key vendors, service providers, and utilities active in the EVSE space. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.

About Us

Eveillard’s Domains (Ev domains) Portfolio was carefully crafted over the last 10 years as a result of my firm belief that the electrification of transportation was inevitable. I anticipated a paradigm shift away from fossil fuels toward clean energy and transportation. I subsequently published “Convert to EV” ” The EV Alternative” and “Electric Vehicle EV: The Second Coming” books, e-books. I have remained very active via countless articles and social commentaries to advance the adoption of EVs and Green Energy while increasing the exposure and branding power of Ev domains individually or as a group.

To my knowledge this is the most complete set of EV Domains and Alternative Energy names available today. Most of them are premium .com brand and generic domain names covering many niches including grid, smart grid, graphene, cloud, swipe, DOOH and miscellaneous evdomains. These and many other Premium Ev Domains command much higher price tags for resale over time or return on investment since the industry is maturing rapidly. For example ,,,,, and among others have recently received offers in the five figures and one under contract for five figures. sold for just shy of $10,000.00 on 01/21/16

Yet some gems in my collection of Ev Domains are worth more and climbing in value rapidly due to the Climate Change Initiative recently signed in Paris. Valuation will continue to rise as the tremendous momentum in EV Production and Mass Adoption accelerates. The strategy of investing ahead of future trend can pay off for you too. We are just at the beginning of an energy and transportation revolution. Do not wait for it to be too late. The time to get your Ev domain is Now. We are just at the inflection point of this paradigm shift.

Buying an EvDomain like Charge EV (.Com) is not just a good investment, it’s a great one!
