Weiss, Jurgen. “The Electrification Accelerator: Understanding the Implications of Autonomous Vehicles for Electric Utilities.” The Electricity Journal 30, no. 10 (2017): 50-57. Publisher's VersionAbstract
    The intersection of autonomous vehicles, ride sharing and transportation electrification could have significant implications for electric utilities. This paper analyses how the development of shared autonomous electric vehicles may make electrified transportation more likely and why this may lead to a more rapid than expected shift in the current transportation paradigm. We also discuss how these trends may affect utilities and suggest what they can do to prepare for the transition
