Norway knows what’s up. This article (NYT link below) gives a window into the future that we have ahead in the US if we successfully transition to electric transportation.

This photo is from one of my first DCFC sessions four years ago. (I’ve had an EV since 2014, but the EVs I owned until this trip were AC charging only.)

It’s a testament to Norway’s leadership in electrification that even four years ago, I could take an 80-mile range EV out into the mountains and know there would be charging available. I didn’t plan my charging in advance, I just looked at PlugShare to see pins along my route and struck out with faith in the Norwegian energy transition.
