The buzz: Charge!
With almost one million electric vehicles already in use on roads around the world, and traffic volume growing daily, utilities are faced with a huge surge in power demands. Can their aging electrical distribution networks, originally built for a bygone era, handle the rising load without the need to rebuild infrastructure? Yes, with the help of sensors in cars, homes, and the power grid. But will this be adequate for business and leisure drivers who need or simply want to drive “to somewhere” right now?
The experts speak.
