Changes in human attitudes and public policy must exist alongside the development and maturation of energy efficiency and battery storage technologies to create the optimal conditions for the mass-market adoption of EVs. The levers of change for EVs include:
• Consumer attitudes and behaviors.
• Auto manufacturer priorities and investments.
• Renewable power grid.
• Charging station infrastructure.
• EV technology advances.
We are at the beginning of a game-changing revolution in the way we power our vehicles that will substantially impact the quality of our environment. Such significant change will only be achieved if we can continue to align the power of government policy, mainstream consumer behavior and technology innovation in radically new ways.
