    Electrifying Transportation: Infrastructure & new business models

    Panel Power & Renewables Innovation & Technology Geopolitics/Policy/Regulatory Transportation & Mobility
    Tailwinds for electrifying transportation are building—local and national governments are raising their decarbonization ambitions, and automakers are announcing intentions to invest heavily in electric vehicles. Those inside and outside the industry wonder if electric vehicles are the next technology revolution that transforms the energy landscape. Ultimately, the transformation will only be possible if the necessary infrastructure is available to support it. How are electric utilities, generators, and charging companies preparing for this future? What would it take to reinvent the transportation-energy marriage in a decade's time? Can today’s electric power and charging business models drive the investment needed, and will they be successful in an increasingly electric future? Could infrastructure challenges stop the electric vehicle revolution before it even gets going?
