Experts talk about electric vehicles, charging, parking and mobility, and the future of the industry. IPMI’S MARKET TRENDS AND RECOVERY SURVEY captured benchmarks and trends for the industry and where parking and mobility professionals see short- and long-term effects regarding recovery and societal and industry trends that shape the work we are doing today. Many responses focused on the immediate need to simply recover— recover revenue, programs, and a sense of normalcy for operations. Beyond that, the survey revealed other considerations beyond revenue recovery and new revenue streams, which included both building infrastructure and programming to accommodate increased EVs on the roads and in our facilities. From on-street programming to off-street facility planning for fleet electrification, respondents are preparing alternative-fuel vehicles. Paired with the focus (and need) to rehab, repair, and adapt off-street facilities, our industry have a unique opportunity to both modernize and update off-street assets as well as provide needed infrastructure to support electric vehicles and fleets. IPMI’s Planning, Design, and Construction Committee and industry experts tackled questions about electric vehicle (EV) adoption, effects on mass transit, mobility hubs, and electrification and fleets.
