Electric vehicles (EVs) are poised to become mobile agents of the transforming grid, with the potential to be both a significant burden to utilities and a valuable future asset. Pioneering utilities in California, the Northeast and other regions are laying the groundwork to expand their role to manage these customer-owned assets and deal with grid integration issues at the retail and wholesale level, and to take advantage of their capabilities to provide grid services. However, to facilitate customer adoption of EVs and ease the technical and regulatory burdens of grid integration, automakers, utilities, regulators, EV technology and service providers (EV SPs), commercial building owners and fleet operators must cooperate on technology rollouts, policy development and the implementation of business plans and cases. How can these diverse industries bridge the knowledge gaps to profit?

Infocast’s EVs and the Grid Summit will gather together automakers, utilities, regulators, EV service providers, fleet owners and experts at the leading edge of EV infrastructure implementation to share their needs, experiences and ideas for integrating EVs and the grid. Automakers will discuss their views of the drivers for future EV and PHEV sales, and the feedback they are getting from customers regarding their needs. Utilities will illuminate the technical challenges in integrating EVs, and the business opportunities they represent. Regulators and policy experts will explore how to best support EV infrastructure investment without overly increasing the cost burden for the customer base or impacting grid reliability. Finally, fleet operators and EV SPs will share their experiences in pioneering EV infrastructure projects.

Attend EVs and the Grid Summit to get the most comprehensive view on where the EV infrastructure market needs to advance today, and where the opportunities to supply grid services lie in the future!
