Decarbonization in the Transportation Sector

Is it prudent to put all of our eggs in the EV option?

Planners have long recognized that the transportation sector is a major source of greenhouse gases and other unhealthy pollutants. More utilities are becoming advocates for electric vehicles as a means to reduce emissions and potentially create beneficial (offpeak) new load. In fact, a number of utilities have made or are planning significant investments in electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Is this a prudent move for utilities given the slow adoption of electric vehicles and the availability of other options for the transportation sector?
