Governments around the world are implementing policies to enhance electric vehicle adoption to reduce the emissions that contribute to climate change and ecological damage. Global sales of battery electric vehicles (BEV) and other EVs are expected to have reached nearly 2.5 million in 2020, according to IHS Markit, and then rise by about 70% in 2021. Side by side with this continuing global expansion is the rise of EV charging infrastructures – critical to EV adoption – and with it, an entire EV charging ecosystem of businesses and service providers.
Forward-thinking US utilities that are required or have committed to lower or zero carbon emissions over the next decades have also realized that in order to achieve these goals, they should be championing the electrification of the transportation sector. As with any challenge, opportunities exist for those willing to invest in electric vehicle infrastructure and customer engagement.
In a recent Apogee webinar with Siemens, Chris King, Siemens’ SVP – eMobility Strategic Partnership and Joel Gilbert, Apogee’s President and Chief Software Architect discussed how customer engagement through digital communications can help utilities unlock this opportunity and encourage EV purchases.
