More than a third of US internet households are likely to purchase a vehicle in the next year.

This webinar addresses the challenges facing EV charging solutions, including the adoption of and familiarity with EVs, purchase drivers and inhibitors, the increase and number of charging stations, and consumer perception of access to charging stations. Speakers will highlight how companies can scale the EV infrastructure, unlock the value of energy data to future proof their business offerings, provide secure and reliable solutions, and the importance of timing in go-to-market strategies.

The “electrification” of everything extends to vehicles, and recently, global market activity is setting the stage for growth of electric vehicles: the US has set infrastructure bills specifically incorporating electric vehicles (EVs), and the EU has set ambitious targets for reduction in emissions for 2030 and 2035.

While EVs are a growing market, the EV ecosystem is still immature and requires substantial investments to scale and meet future demands. Consumers have many concerns around the reliability and security of the vehicle, the charging infrastructure being in place to alleviate charging concerns, and the operational aspects that come with it, including the use of data and the development and introduction of new business models. In areas where electrical supply is constrained during peak demands and pricing varies, data is critical to understand customer use, consumption, and gain better control of the physical assets.

Range anxiety is a major concern for consumers and charging infrastructure remains proprietary in many cases. EV owners are obliged to find charging stations compatible with their vehicle – a point of friction that general consumers may not tolerate. New regulations are complex and still unfolding; requirements are changing and keeping up to date is a challenge.

Key Data

  • 6% of US internet households own at least one electric vehicle
  • For consumers saying nearby charging stations would increase their likelihood to purchase an EV, most are asking for a distance of 10 miles or less.
  • Consumers who don’t live in an urban area are also much more likely to cite vehicle cost, charging access, frequency, access, and length of time as purchase inhibitors.
