August Event Details

The Issue - Improving the Electric Grid and Infrastructure to Meet the Needs of Electric Vehicles

As the number of electric vehicles (EVs) begins to rise, there is a strong push towards the electrification of our transportation infrastructure. Utilities will have to effectively model their performance and incentivize charging behavior for both the general public and business sector. According to Electric Light and Power, electric vehicles are projected to exceed 18 million vehicles by the year 2030, or an estimated seven percent of the total vehicles – cars and light trucks – on the road. 

As millions of EVs increase their demand for power and connectivity to the grid, what are the challenges that will be encountered by the utilities and planners? This dialogue will focus on how we can improve our electric grid system and infrastructure to meet the growing needs and demands of EVs.
