While billions of dollars are being spent on charging infrastructure and the electric vehicles themselves, we often forget to include the third essential ingredient in electric transportation success: the human decision-maker at a home or business. Electric transportation isn’t just a technology shift; it involves a major behavior change endeavor.
The Electric Vehicle Driver Experience Initiative (EVDX) focuses on improving the EV journey for consumers and businesses, seeing the issues through their lens, not ours. Our EVDX Solutions Lab, held this summer, included 100 EV professionals learning from sessions and engaging in ‘innovation design sprints’ to identify core barriers to EV adoption and create high level solutions to overcome those barriers. This webinar will start by illuminating the key themes that were presented by speakers at the Lab, and then share programmatic solutions for utilities, governments, and non-profits that are hard at work on this essential transition.
Topics covered include:
