Electric Vehicles Prime to Disrupt Market
Electric vehicles are making the news – and not just for being shot into space. The grid demand for electrically charged vehicles is changing the utility industry and disrupting the personal vehicle industry.
For example, Ford Motor Company’s current CEO James Hackett, (formally the head of Ford’s self-driving car division) says that Ford will have 40 electric models by 2022. General Motors has likewise committed itself to an all-electric future, hoping to have more than 18 electric EV models in production by 2023. “General Motors believes the future is all-electric,” says Mark Reuss, the company’s president of GM North America.
With estimates indicating upwards of 2.9 million EVs on the road by 2022, the electricity demand on the grid could grow more than 11,000 gigawatt-hours in just a few years. Utilities must be thinking about their own infrastructure. Likewise, solar and other renewable energy installers are considering their plans.
