In 2014, the Guardian dedicated an entire article to this question: Why aren’t brands using social media to take a strong stance on climate change?

Welcome back! Hopefully you have returned to work feeling as refreshed and renewed for 2019 as we are at KSV. As Mary mentioned in our last EnergyWire, this year is going to bring a multitude of exciting initiatives to the forefront of our agency.
This is the time of year we get to reflect on the accomplishments and challenges of the prior 12 months and use these lessons in our planning to make the next year even better. At KSV, our goal every day and every year for the entire team is to focus on getting better, getting smarter, providing more to our clients, and, through our efforts, helping to make the world a better place for everyone.

We’ve got our noses buried in electric vehicle consumer insights research lately. Since EVs are taking up a considerable amount of our brain capacity these days, we thought we’d share a few of the EV news stories we have been paying close attention to in the last week or so.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
The team at KSV certainly has a lot to be thankful for – inspiring clients, innovative colleagues and a community dedicated to sustainable energy, just to name a few things on our list.
It’s 2018. If you’re a utility and you’re not already on social media, you’re late to the table. Three billion active social media users around the world log on to at least one social media platform on a regular – if not daily – basis. That means utility companies have countless opportunities to reach consumers where they are in their day-to-day journeys.
But just because your utility has a presence on social media, and you’re posting on Facebook every day, doesn’t mean that your job is done. Far from it.
Do you have a strategy that is shifting the way utility customers think about you, or are they only checking your Twitter feed to see how much longer the power will be out on their street? (Which, by the way, is still important. It’s just not the whole picture.)

NEEP, NECEC, NESEA, ACE, VTREV… what do all these abbreviations have in common? They are all the energy-related conferences that KSV sponsored or attended in October. It was Energy Awareness Month, and we celebrated it by making the rounds for conference season.

To reach the carbon reduction goals outlined in the Paris Agreement, and in targets set by dozens of city and state governments, electrifying the transportation sector is key. But despite huge advancements in technology, electric vehicles (EVs) continue to make up only a small fraction of the U.S. automobile market. In fact, EVs were less than 1 percent of the total vehicle market share in the United States until 2017, when they finally hit the 1 percent milestone.
Growth is now accelerating, largely thanks to the success of Tesla’s Model 3. July was the first month on record that EV sales reached 2 percent of market share, doubling the 2017 annual result. But how can the EV market reach scale?
