Electric vehicles could drive a 38% rise in U.S. electricity consumption by 2050. To prepare, utilities and other energy companies are partnering with auto manufacturers and other stakeholders to explore how to manage grid stress, use EVs as distributed resources and ensure customers make the transition to electric transportation smoothly.
Utility Dive is tracking these partnerships, which span a range of subject areas that include managed charging, vehicle-to-grid integration and customer outreach.
The following announcements represent a sample of such collaborations. While this tracker is not intended to be comprehensive, we will update it with news about notable partnerships. Contact Robert Walton if you know of announcements that should be included.
