This presentation analyzes the potential role of electric utilities in supporting Transport Electrification (TE) in Sri Lanka. It outlines the barriers to the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) as well as regulatory and pricing issues in Sri Lanka. It also compares and contrasts the outcomes, learning, and arguments from the U.S. State Public Utilities Commission Proceedings to Sri Lanka from a qualitative perspective, looking into degrees of utility ownership, equity, market competition, innovation, managed charging and social inclusion to inform TE policy in Sri Lanka.
