Creating Energy Security through Electrification

WSP energy experts discuss the benefits and challenges of adopting zero-emission vehicles in public and private spaces, including notable works in the state of Florida.

To reduce carbon emissions caused by fossil-fuel based transportation, policymakers, fleet operators and governments are transitioning toward zero-emission vehicles.

While energy simply lost to heat with an internal combustible engine vehicle, with an electric vehicle all of the energy goes directly to the wheels, reducing overall emissions.

Eventually, a national network of alternative fuel and charging infrastructure corridors will support electric vehicle charging and address long-distance driving concerns.

While there’s sufficient transmission and overall generation capacity for vehicles to become all electric, there can be issues when it comes to the distribution of this power.
