Discover how the Latest Infrastructure Investments will Drive Electric Vehicle Adoption Forward
Investing in electric vehicle infrastructure is about to take off. California’s three major IOUs have laid out plans worth over $1B to try to electrify the state’s transportation system. However, there are uncertainties surrounding infrastructure ownership and responsibilities, rate design, range capabilities, and charging times, which can be deterrents to widespread consumer adoption. A tight, ongoing coordination is required between all parties. The rollout of programs, technologies, protocols, and standards needs to proceed in an integrated way.
Returning for its third edition, Infocast’s EVs & the Grid summit gathers all major players involved in vehicle-grid integration (VGI) and the electrification of America’s transportation system. Regulators and utilities will provide an update on the latest proposals and business models. City planners, charging station hosts, and electric vehicle service providers (EVSPs) will assess partnership opportunities for infrastructure development and expansion. OEMs and fleet owners will share their outlook of the market and perspectives on adoption hurdles.
The Pre-Summit Briefing: Preparing for Electric Fleets & Autonomous Vehicles, on October 17, 2017, will offer an in-depth examination of collaborative efforts from transportation authorities, OEMs, fleet owners, and newer players involved in electric vehicles. Together they will discuss electrification needs of a rapidly evolving transportation system.
