The global solar charging station market size was valued at $0.55 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.88 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 18.5% from 2022 to 2031.

Electric vehicles have increasingly become mandatory across the globe due to their positive impact on the environment. The government encourages drivers to use electric vehicles, which have less environmental impact than internal combustion engines. Typical charging stations are used to charge electric vehicles; however, it uses 40% to 60% of the country’s national grid power to charge vehicles made with non-renewable energy. Electric vehicles are more environment friendly, although they still use the grid power to charge the vehicle battery, which uses fossil fuels and other non-renewable energy sources. EVs still reduce their environmental impact, however, using EV charging stations running on non-renewable energy sources has continuous negative impact on the environment. Therefore, electrification alone is not enough to decarbonize transport. A solar charging station for electric vehicles is the solution to zero this emission. Not only it is good for the environment, however, it is also a big advantage for the vehicle fleet. A solar car charging station guarantees a 100% carbon-neutral footprint.

Rise in demand for EVs globally

There has been a constant rise in the adoption of electric vehicles, ever since they started becoming mainstream. Countries that spend a major chunk of their incomes on importing crude oil are witnessing a rise in the adoption of electric vehicles. This makes electric vehicles a viable and sustainable means of transportation for countries that rely heavily on imported crude oil, as well as countries where rising carbon emissions are a problem. The growing popularity of electric vehicles necessitates the establishment of a reliable charging network to accommodate the ever-expanding fleet of electric vehicles. For instance, in September 2022, the U.S. government approved plans to support the building of chargers by funding $1.5 billion in federal funding across all fifty states in the U.S. Similarly, in 2023, Tata Power, one of India’s’ largest EV charging solutions provider announced their plans to install around 25,000 new EV charging points across the nation in the next 5 years. In such instances, greener and sustainable technologies such as solar charging stations are sure to get traction in the future.

Solar Charging Station Market by Component

Excessive costs associated with the equipment requirements of solar stations

All solar stations are comprised of three basic components, solar photovoltaic panels, an inverter, and an energy storage medium. For many years, batteries have been the prime method of storing electricity generated by solar photovoltaic cells. Whilst there has been a reduction in costs of solar photovoltaic panels and inverters used across commercial applications, the cost of storage systems has gone up. Since storage systems constitute a major chunk of the overall costs of a complete solution, the overall costs of solar stations are still high. In addition, the energy received from the sun varies with variables such as tracking capabilities and seasons, it becomes an irregular source of energy, thereby increasing the need for reliable storage solutions for smooth operations.

Solar Charging Station Market by Region

Furthermore, the current recycling techniques for recycling solar photovoltaic panels are inefficient and rarely deployed. Owing to this, elements such as silver, copper, and silicon, which together account for around two-thirds of the monetary worth of a silicon panel’s materials are rarely recycled back. This further hinders the initiative to keep the cost of solar equipment low. And, due to these reasons, the excessive costs associated with solar equipment is expected to hinder the growth of solar charging station market.

Government incentives and subsidies to promote the usage of solar energy

Solar energy as an energy source comes with many environmental and economic advantages. However, the widespread adoption of solar energy has been hampered by a lack of incentives and policies to encourage its use. To overcome this, governments across the globe are focusing on providing financial and regulatory incentives to encourage the adoption of solar based products. For instance, in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) solar energy technologies office (SETO) supports funding opportunities on photovoltaics, concentrating solar-thermal power, systems integration, as well as to cover the soft costs associated with the projects. Similarly, developing countries have started to shift their focus on renewable alternatives such as solar powered equipment. For instance, the ministry of new and renewable energy, Government of India has numerous scheme that aid in funding of solar based projects. Furthermore, governments also offer tax credits and rebates for businesses to install solar panels. Thus, by reducing the upfront costs of installation, these incentives can increase the affordability of solar energy, making it more accessible to a larger portion of the population. These factors are expected to create numerous opportunities that are expected to result in the growth of the market in the future.
