EV Charging Infrastructure Summit - North America

, Online Event , Your Computer

Note: This event was originally planned for November 12-13, 2020 in Chicago, IL, and has now been rescheduled and changed to an online event.

New date: January 26, 2021

EVs are projected to make up 60%-75% of total new light-duty vehicle sales in the US by 2050, representing 13%-15% of national electricity demand. This growing load will have significant implications for utility networks and planning, as public and private charging infrastructure must be positioned to meet the burgeoning wave of EV adoption. Now is the time for utilities, municipalities and other stakeholders to position for success in the coming EV ecosystem.

The online EV Charging Infrastructure Summit - North America on January 26, 2021 convenes top industry experts and utility professionals to examine how growing EV adoption rates will impact the network, and what investments are needed to ensure grid stability and benefit. Case studies of current utility programs and deployments will be discussed with an eye toward refining strategies, identifying technologies, and implementing business models that will ensure widespread EV adoption is optimized for all parties involved.
