Update on non-Tesla DC fast charging station density in North America

In the fall of 2018 I published a surprisingly controversial article ranking states and provinces by their non-Tesla, DC fast-charging station density relative to population. The article, California Lags in DC Fast-Charging Station Density for Electric Vehicles, was based on data from the Alternative Fuels Data Center.

The question was how you compare the progress toward expanding the EV charging network between big states and little states when they are so different in size and population. It seemed clear that the number of EVs and their need for inter-city charging was determined more by population than geographic size. Of course the best determinant is the number of EVs on the road relative to the number of stations, but that number wasn’t readily available for Canada. 

Further, not all states and provinces had any program encouraging EV adoption so that limited the choice for comparison to those regions doing something. At the time it seemed a pretty straightforward analysis of who had done a better job of installing more non-Tesla stations.
