Can the electricity grid cope with the surge of Electric Vehicles (EVs)? GIS holds the answer.

The growth of EVs has been nothing short of remarkable. In the first quarter of 2023, EV sales increased by an impressive 63% compared to 2022. With the aggressive decarbonization targets in place, this trend is expected to continue without any signs of slowing down. The pressing question arises: Will the grid meet the escalating demand for electricity?

The key to finding the answer lies in understanding when and where this surge in EV adoption will take place. By harnessing the power of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), utilities can assess the impact of EV deployment on the grid and identify potential locations for charging stations.

To gain insights into the where and when of EV deployment, we invite you to listen in to our complimentary on-demand event. During this conversation, you will witness how utilities can leverage established GIS approaches and additional capabilities of the ArcGIS Utility Network to model the grid's capacity and anticipate potential challenges effectively. Additionally, the discussion will showcase how GIS can help utilities incorporate social equity considerations into their decarbonization efforts.

Listen now and stay ahead of the curve in addressing the impact of EVs on the electricity grid. Learn how GIS can ensure a smooth and sustainable transition to electric mobility.
