A Pacific Northwest investor-owned utility (IOU) was embarking on a statewide initiative to increase knowledge and awareness of EVs as well as stimulate consideration and adoption. But there was much to learn.

EVs are growing in popularity so our client used Escalent’s insights to launch a metrics-based marketing and communication campaign to promote EV awareness, consideration and acquisition. Our client is using our key metrics to track expansion of the region’s electric transportation and is sharing the ongoing results publicly with state and regional officials.
