From personal vehicles to buses and commercial fleets, mobility is continuing to shift toward electrification. And that means more than just a shift away from oil. It could also represent a gift of massive proportions for the renewable energy industry. By 2030, EVs will require as much as 640 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity. That's about the same as the annual energy consumption of 58 million single family homes in the U.S. If we enabled cars to charge with clean power, could it be that EVs will soon become the largest purchasers of renewable energy in the world?
In this Medium article, Energy Web Foundation's Doug Miller argues that it's time to fast-track solutions that allow EVs to charge on 100 percent clean energy—even on grids that aren't yet 100 percent clean. If you're curious about what those solutions might look like, how they can be brought to market and how they'd impact the energy industry overall, take a read through the full story.
