Transportation electrification means new opportunities
(for those who dare…).
What comes to your mind when you hear “electric car”? A new kind of a vehicle that promises to be a quiet, efficient, and more environmentally friendly way to get to work?
Well, that is all true, but EVs are going to have much bigger effects than simply offering improved personal commuting experiences. They will provide new opportunities for vehicle manufacturers and dealers to offer new product lines; they will create jobs for architects, electrical manufacturers and electricians who will design, manufacture and install charging infrastructure; and they will move a portion of transportation energy production and delivery from oil to electricity, thereby drastically reducing our reliance on oil and providing new revenue to charging infrastructure providers and electric utility companies. EVs will also challenge everyone to consider how we want to provide energy for our transportation, and this will increase the demand for renewable energy. Take any of these pieces and think about how they relate to your business and how your company could provide innovative solutions to the market to take advantage of the new opportunities this transition brings. Then contact us and see how we can help you in that process.
