ScottMadden Energy Industry Update: Facing the “Strange” – Electric Vehicle Sales Trends and Business Model Analysis

April 15, 2015

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, recently released its newest edition of the Energy Industry Update. This semi-annual publication offers our inside view of major events and emerging trends in the energy industry. This edition includes an in-depth analysis of electric vehicle (EV) sales trends and business models.

ScottMadden’s Energy Industry Update explores how EVs continue to make inroads and utility and other companies in this sector seek the right charging infrastructure and business models.

“Electric vehicle sales continue to grow, aided by favorable state policies and improving technology, and utilities are warming to the business opportunities for EVs and related infrastructure. Low gasoline prices continue to be a headwind, but not as significant as one might fear. Nonetheless, consistency in policy is critical. For example, recent legislative activity in Georgia—rolling back state incentives and imposing EV fees—could dampen what has been a strong EV market. This is an unfortunate development for areas like Atlanta that are plagued by ozone problems,” said Randy McAdams, partner at ScottMadden.
