With the calls for reducing carbon emissions, the popularity of electric vehicles has been steadily increasing with more automakers introducing plug-in models on a regular basis.

But charging all of these EVs requires an extensive charging infrastructure to make their use convenient and useful.

Following Tesla's  (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report lead, several companies are building their own networks of charging stations including some fossil fuel companies, including Shell and BP. 

Automakers are also joining in by partnering with other companies to provide charging options. Robotics company ABB is partnering with Porsche to develop fast chargers and Hyundai is partnering with Kia to develop wireless chargers.

Charging time is the biggest challenge to overcome and the race is on to come up with fast chargers to get EVs charged up and back on the road as quickly as possible.
