Theme: The private provision of common pools: the case of electrical vehicle recharging infrastructure”

Abstract: In the past 120 years, electrical vehicle markets have emerged and died on several occasions. While the origins of these failures are multiple, the non-emergence of available and accessible recharging infrastructure for off-grid electrical transport has been a recurring bottleneck for electrical vehicles to spread as a technology. With current increased pressure on automakers to develop electrical cars, the question therefore still remains "who will develop the recharging infrastructure for EV recharging"? We explore this question using a combination of the theory of economic goods and sociological theories of market emergence. Our analysis provides a framework for the development of industry shared resources, which currently has been focused mostly on upstream R&D or industry-wide standard-setting processes and does not include the development of shared complementary assets.
