Back to Environmental Stewardship


While Ameren is working to reduce our own emissions, we are also helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the U.S.’s largest source – the transportation industry. By building the infrastructure to support electrification, we are making it easier for consumers and businesses to use and charge electric vehicles (EVs), which produce no carbon emissions, and for public transportation to transition to electric buses. EVs also support better utilization of the electric grid, which helps lower energy costs for all customers.

We’re making the transition to electric vehicles at Ameren too. Our goal is that 100% of new light-duty vehicle purchases by 2030 will be electric. In addition, 35% of our overall vehicle fleet, including light-duty, medium-duty, heavy-duty, forklifts and ATV/UTV, will be electrified by 2030.

Ameren is promoting EV adoption among our co-workers with a variety of incentives, including educational events and charging available at our facilities.

Supporting Electrification in Our Region

More than 2 million electric vehicles are driven on U.S. roads today. By 2030, that number is expected to grow to 22 million, according to the Edison Electric Institute (EEI). In addition to producing no carbon emissions, EVs offer many benefits to drivers, including a wide range of models to choose from and savings of up to $1,200 per year in fuel and maintenance costs.

Ameren’s electrification strategy includes investing in programs and infrastructure needed to enable EV adoption:

With the help of the Edison Electric Institute, an Ameren-led Midwest EV charging network has joined forces with 50 other investor-owned utilities to form the National Electric Highway Coalition.

We are providing incentives to drive Missouri businesses to install 1,000 EV charging stations at 350 locations across the state.

In Illinois, Ameren has enabled a local school district to transition to electric school buses. Ameren Missouri helped Bi-State Development and Metro Transit bring electric buses to the St. Louis region by building the charging infrastructure.
