A new mobility is taking hold. Electrification is cleaner for our communities, costs less per mile to transport people and goods, and provides greater efficiency and benefits to the grid.
Electric vehicle (EV) adoption is outpacing predictions, and trends point to mass adoption of consumer and commercial electric vehicles within the next two decades.
EV charging infrastructure is proliferating but it’s a race to support the surge of new EV drivers. As stakeholders gear up, and autonomous vehicles hit the roadways, now is the time to scale — and fast.
Black & Veatch has deployed over 1,000 electric vehicle charging sites.
Automakers are building desirable electric vehicles in all segments, and buyers will have more choices. Light-, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles — including transit semi-trucks and off-road vehicles — have better battery range and performance. Policymakers are developing strategies and incentives to encourage adoption. Progressive utilities are developing electrification roadmaps that leverage lessons learned from pilots to scale full programs with industry participation, customer education, and managed charging to stabilize the grid.

Volta's Electric Vehicle Charging Network
Black & Veatch is a market leader in high-powered charging station infrastructure. We were key players in the first U.S. nationwide EV charging program. Since then, we’ve provided electrical and space planning, distributed energy, design, permitting, and construction services at more than 1,000 sites to support EV charger installation. This means we fully understand the challenges and can quickly navigate them to accelerate speed to market.

Project Story: Urban EV Charging Networks
As all-electric cars increase in popularity, a critical issue for drivers is having sufficient charging resources to stay on the road during longer trips, not to mention paying for the power. Volta Charging aims to help alleviate range anxiety by rapidly scaling its portfolio of free public electric car charging stations.
We're accelerating Volta Charging's electric vehicle charging station rollout.
Project Story: Tesla Supercharger U.S. Build-Out
Tesla Motors, Inc.
Tesla Motors manufactures the Tesla Model S, the all-electric car that won the Motor Trend 2013 Car of the Year award. While developing the car, Tesla launched a program to aggressively deploy high-power, fast-charging stations — “Superchargers” — along major travel corridors throughout the United States.
We've deployed over 540 Tesla Supercharger sites across the United States and Canada over the past 5 years.
Project Story: Utilities Key to Powering the Future of Mass Transit EVs
2018 Strategic Directions: Smart Cities and Utility Report
California announced an ambitious plan to reduce emissions by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. Satisfying these goals will require contributions from all sectors of the economy, the transition to zero- and low-emission vehicles will play an outsized role — particularly when it comes to mass transit.
We're building overhead, on-route electric bus charging infrastructure as well as overnight plug-in charging depots in multipule U.S. cities.Learn More
