Are Utilities Ready for the EV Revolution?
September 8, 2022 @ 11:30AM EST Co-hosts: Brian O’Leary, Global Accounts Manager, Global Head e-Mobility & Infrastructure, Kevin Hernandez, Loren McDonald
By 2030, electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to reach nearly 40 million vehicles on the road in the US and around 12% of all vehicles. This growth in EVs will demand a significant increase in charging infrastructure where people live, work, shop, and travel to — and the utility backbone of power generation, grid transmission, and local distribution.

By 2030, electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to reach nearly 40 million vehicles on the road in the US and around 12% of all vehicles. This growth in EVs will demand a significant increase in charging infrastructure where people live, work, shop, and travel to — and the utility backbone of power generation, grid transmission, and local distribution.

In this webcast, utility consultant and expert Kevin Hernandez of consulting firm ScottMadden, will share his thoughts on what he believes is the utility industry’s biggest business opportunity in 100 years — but also its largest challenge of which to take advantage. Hosts Brian O’Leary and Loren McDonald will dive into key topics with Kevin including:

  • The utility and public utility commission regulatory framework that can make it difficult for utilities to respond quickly to market changes
  • EV charging infrastructure, battery storage, vehicle to grid, smart charging, and more are significant opportunities for utilities in the future — which market opportunities are they likely to lead versus follow?
  • Supplying power to residential and commercial customers is all about data. How will utilities leverage their existing customer relationships and data analytics to best manage and monetize the expected explosive growth in power demand from EV charging infrastructure.

The EV Revolution: Past, Present, and Future, features guest Chelsea Sexton. Sexton helped launch the EV-1, was a consulting producer for Who Killed the Electric Car, co-founded Plug-In America, and has held several EV consulting and advisory roles. She will help O’Leary and McDonald put the last two and a half decades—and the coming decade—of electric vehicle development into perspective. They’ll explore the excitement of the early 1990s through the launch of the Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt. Sexton will also share her perspective on the state of EV charging infrastructure, what she sees as key for EVs to go mainstream, and if the industry will experience a turning point similar to when Apple launched the iPhone.
