Electric vehicle (EV) adoption is now expanding across consumer, commercial, industrial, and public sectors—which should represent significant opportunities for electric utilities.
By Andrew Dillon and Shelly Hagerman

By proactively responding to EV trends, utilities can define several value streams that will drive regulatory policy and align staff around a holistic approach to transportation electrification (TE) program management. Implementing a cohesive end-to-end TE program that is able to meet the needs of the utility and customer must leverage cross-departmental collaboration and work flow.

"Transportation electrification and the harnessing of flexible EV charging loads represent one of the most transformative opportunities for today’s electric utility."


This paper covers best practices when managing EV initiatives, preparing utilities to: 

  • Enable EV infrastructure development that can achieve load growth as high as 15 percent by 2030
  • Establish systems to absorb EV load growth without affecting grid reliability
  • Provide new services that engage commercial and industrial (C&I) customers looking to install EV infrastructure
