— Transportation Electrification: A Guide to Planning, Deployment and Operations
The electrification of everything is in full swing across the electricity sector. With transportation electrification gaining traction, it’s more critical than ever to have the right strategy towards optimizing your transportation electrification programs this year.

​In this new webinar, West Monroe Partners and utility EV program leaders discuss what’s on the horizon for electric vehicle adoption and how utilities can best prepare. They will also speak about integrated program management that can benefit any emerging or existing initiative around EV charging infrastructure and EV adoption for light, medium and heavy-duty vehicle programs.

​You will learn about:

  • Forecasts that suggest potential load growth from EV charging alone
  • Insights and best practices in developing transportation electrification programs
  • Integrated program management

Presented by West Monroe Partners through Utility Dive
