The electric vehicle industry has spawned an ecosystem of vehicles, charging equipment and managed charging businesses. A key emerging trend is how central the role of electric utilities has become for a new generation of Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) companies, which might be called EVSE 2.0
Electric vehicles first rose to prominence with Tesla’s introduction in 2007, with other manufacturers (OEMs) introducing EV’s more slowly over time. In the early years, EV owners expected to charge at home, usually at usual household voltages 110, and sometimes with solutions calling for high voltage outlets – so-called Level 2 charging. Only a handful of companies saw an opportunity for outside-the-home commercial charging as electric industry suppliers like Schneider and General Electric entered the market. These EVSE installations were small additions to utility commercial markets.
