A recent white paper from the Edison Foundation asserts that more than five million electric vehicles (EVs) will be on U.S. roads by 2035. Depending on battery technology advances and the price of oil, that number could reach up to 30 million. As consumers get a wider choice in EV models and adoption rates climb, utilities will be facing a significant new residential load. Now is the time to start preparing for plug-in electric vehicles, and the considerable energy management challenges they represent for electric utilities.
The third annual Electric Vehicles Virtual Summit on Thursday, June 27, is a one-day, online conference that will delve into the challenges and issues surrounding the successful implementation of intelligent charging infrastructure for the emerging EV market. Speakers will discuss the latest advances in EV battery capabilities, consumer uptake and behavior, and correctly designing intelligent support and charging infrastructure for EVs. This event can help utility executives, smart grid managers, planners and engineers for an emerging technology that promises to have a big impact on their systems.
