According to a map showing new EV charger investments by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), more than $500 million has been invested in American EV-related factories since 2021. That’s an obvious result of the quickly expanding EV market, which attracts new investments.
As of September 2023, more than 40 new plants have been announced, and these investments are expected to translate into more than 3,000 new jobs.
The new EV charger factories will produce Level 2 AC charging points (home and public units), as well as DC fast chargers and even wireless charging solutions.
The map attached to this article, shared on Building America’s Clean Energy Future website as an interactive version, indicates that there are about 15 new DC fast charger plant projects on the way, plus 9 DC and AC charger plant projects, 13 AC charger plant projects, and two wireless charger sites.

There is a big chance that the list of new EV charger investments will continue to grow in the coming years, as many manufacturers would like to secure a strong position in a market expected to go all-electric in the coming decades. So it will be worth checking out the DOE’s website occasionally for the most up-to-date data.
Today, the market share of all-electric cars in new car sales in the U.S. exceeds 7% (or around 100,000 new BEVs a month in recent months). That’s already a substantial market for home charging units, work charging units, fleet charging units, and public charging units.
