Join Ryan Bossis and Brady McNall as they explore tactics for utilities who are focused on EV program uptake, overcoming cost barriers and enhancing the availability of charging stations.

Some topics at a glance:

  • Grid management
  • Siting with the help of Derive and charging provider analytics

Meaningful Electrification: Supercharging Customer Adoption

Utilities play a critical role in increasing household access to EVs and electric transportation across the socio-economic strata. In the spirit of enhancing the relationship between utilities and residential customers we'll dive into a comprehensive approach to program design for increased uptake of EVs by everyday ratepayers. This webinar will also cover how single passenger EV ownership will change and dovetail into greater electric mobility at large as EVs become more accessible to individuals with traditionally less engagement on the subject.


Some topics at a glance:

  • Customer education & program design
  • Lowered friction at points of sale
  • Charging infrastructure fit
  • Digital tools that bridge the gap between utilities and residents
  • Strategies for engaging customers at every socioeconomic level
  • Electric mobility beyond the single household
