Number of Charging Stations to Reach 1.02 Million by 2020

This RS gives an overview of the Strategic Analysis of Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure (V2G and V2H) in Japan from 2012 to 2020. This includes executive summary, research scope, objectives, background and methodology, definitions, charging station infrastructure standards and regulations, challenges, drivers and restraints - total market, total market overview and forecast, telematics and emobility IT platform for electric vehicles, business model analysis, emerging concepts of EV charging - inductive charging, solar charging, vehicle-to-grid (V2G), vehicle-to-home (V2H), vehicle-to-building (V2B), strategic conclusions and future outlook, and appendix.

Executive Summary—Key Findings

Strong government funding since 2012 has supported the increased penetration of alternate current (AC) ‘fast’ charging and direct current (DC) charging infrastructure in Japan.

1. Charging Type: AC ‘slow’ charging is expected to account for % of the market share, followed by AC ‘fast’ charging with %, and the remaining X% and X% for DC and inductive charging, respectively, in 2020.
2. Government Support: Government funding will be the most crucial factor that will influence the EV charging infrastructure market as there are funds and tax incentives for purchase of electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) and also for charging infrastructure.
3. Connector Standard: Type 1 connector for AC and CHAdeMO connector for DC charging are expected to remain dominant till 2020 in the Japanese market and primarily will be adopted by majority of local OEMs.
4. Business Model: All participants are expected to adopt the subscription model as it possesses several advantages, such as customer retention, building brand value, steady flow of revenue, and a faster return on investment. In all, 4 OEMs (Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and Mitsubishi) have agreed to provide standardized subscription services beyond 2014.
5. Business Model: All participants are expected to adopt the subscription model as it possesses several advantages, such as customer retention, building brand value, steady flow of revenue, and a faster return on investment. In all, 4 OEMs (Toyota, Nissan, Honda, and Mitsubishi) have agreed to provide standardized subscription services beyond 2014.

Executive Summary—Key Conclusions

1. It is likely to be difficult to achieve the target for charging stations number in 2020 (Level 1 and Level 2: X million, DC charging: X), which has been defined by the Japanese Government, without retaining or increasing the current level of subsidies.
2. Utilities are expected to be the strongest participants in the value chain as they will partner with the charging station manufacturers and infrastructure providers, especially toward V2H and V2G services.
3. Level 2 charging stations are likely to be introduced, which are expected to be the most viable option in public locations unless the hardware and installation cost for DC charging stations falls to X% to X% of the current levels.
