Planning for an Electric Vehicle Future: How Utilities Can Succeed

With forecasts of more than 20 million EVs on U.S. roads by 2030, a new report from the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) builds the case for a strong utility role in transportation electrification, by identifying opportunities for utilities to minimize infrastructure challenges, improve internal planning and forecasting methods, and provide best-in-class customer service.

Combining results from an industry survey with personal insights of utility industry experts, the paper delivers recommendations and best practices for improving how utilities should support, plan and deploy EV charging infrastructure. With similar time horizons for realizing large EV deployments and utility infrastructure deployments, the message is clear: all utilities should be preparing today for significant EV penetration.
