Past event: EV Charging Infrastructure Summit - North America, West

The Edison Electric Institute estimates some 9.6 million charge points will be needed in the U.S. by the end of the decade to support an estimated 18.7 million EVs on the road. As of April 2023, there were 136,513 charging ports at 53,764,000 public and private stations, according to the U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels Data Center. This massive increase in EV charging infrastructure will have important implications for the grid, and present stakeholders with significant challenges - and opportunities.

The 4th EV Charging Infrastructure Summit - North America, West, January 30-31 2024 in Los Angeles 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.
