Interview with Glenda Duggan, Managing Director UK Electric Vehicle practice and Utilities Consulting Lead, Accenture

eMobility Accellerated

  • Without significant rapid improvement, poor customer experience could risk delays in EV adoption and hinder global efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
  • eMobility’s evolution is dependent on an ecosystem working in harmony to achieve scalability that helps meet net zero objectives.
  • Cross-industry collaboration is critical, no single company or industry has the scale, technological expertise or customer base to succeed alone.
  • We see strong convergence of the oil and gas, utilities and automotive value chains, focused on a seamless charging experience.

Lead the charge: Fleet electrification accelerated

For organizations that own or operate fleets, the pressure to decarbonize is on. Are you ready?

  • Accenture research reveals most organizations are still in the early stages of fleet electrification.
  • Alignment on strategy, internal opposition, insufficient infrastructure, and underestimation of the complexities are impeding efforts to electrify.
  • Find out what challenges fleet operators are facing, and key actions to accelerate electrification towards net zero.
