Accelerate your mobility initiatives by developing a mobility strategy and roadmap as well as a comprehensive, defensible transportation electrification (TE) plan.
We use predictive data science and ethnographic research to help you determine which programs to offer to the right audience and to assess and plan for grid impacts. Our experts help with technology validation, electric transportation program design, predictive customer targeting, and community outreach and strategic marketing campaigns and messaging.
Utilities and EVs
Wherever you are on your mobility journey, we’ll save you time, improve your offerings, deliver more value to the right customers in less time, and ensure grid reliability.
Phase 1: Choosing a destination
Your utility knows EVs are coming but hasn’t started designing an EV portfolio by developing a TE plan.
Resources to help you get started with a TE plan
Jump-start or refine your utility’s TE plan efforts
Research and advisory
The E Source Mobility Service can help you understand what your customers expect from their utility when it comes to EVs, learn from utility TE plan, and stay on top of industry trends.
E Source TE Insights allows you to benchmark your TE plan against those of peer utilities. Our tool offers the most robust data in the industry, enabling you to understand the information within utility TE plans and explore annual TE reports, EV-specific time-of-use rates, and program incentive levels. You can track planned and actual utility TE spending and results and understand how utilities are allocating their funds to rebates, capital expenditures, admin, and outreach. The database includes reports for spending and impacts, rates, and incentives and gives you full access to the document library.
Our consulting team can help you create or refine your TE plan like we did with PacifiCorp. We can also conduct a market scan in your service area to reveal key market players and opportunities for partnerships.
Phase 2: Mapping your route
Your utility is starting to map out—or refine—its EV strategy. You need inputs for your TE plan as you’re discussing how to handle the grid impacts of adding load to your system. You might be developing mobility programs for a small number of EVs on the road but don’t have a comprehensive portfolio yet.

Phase 3: Accelerating
Your utility is actively planning the implementation of offerings for customers who own an EV or operate large fleets of vehicles. You’re working with charging providers and other vendors to plan the tactical infrastructure for mobility solutions for all classes of customers.
