The nonprofit Smart Electric Power Alliance is out with a new analysis of utilities that finds the sector is not moving aggressively to prepare for wider adoption of electric vehicles.

Why it matters: Widespread EV adoption will create new demands on the power sector but also provide new opportunities, such as using their batteries to send energy back onto the grid.
