Electric utilities and electric transport: a marriage made in heaven?

Electric Mobility

Beyond supplying power for electric vehicle charging, utilities are actively planning and developing charging infrastructure, and shaping customer charging behaviors.

  • One problem which utilities are currently addressing: development of e-mobility, especially recharging infrastructure, is slowed by the multitude of local jurisdictions.
  • Deciding where to put infrastructure to serve e-mobility is more complex than serving other electricity customers.
  • Extending charging infrastructure into poorer communities is increasingly seen as a way to enhance the inclusive characteristics of e-mobility.
  • The nature of current charging technologies means that the place value of adjoining land use is an even greater transit concern relative to conventional fueling stations.
