“I like how the summit was structured from government to V2G to utilities, private companies, local governments and businesses,” said past attendee Daniel Maloney, Energy Management of Los Angeles County.

Infocast’s EVs & the Grid Summit, set for October 17-19, 2017 in San Francisco, California, will create partnership opportunities among all major players and investors in the electric vehicles industry.

California’s three major utilities have already laid out plans worth over $1 billion to electrify the state’s transportation system. Regional associations, such as NESCAUM, have rolled out initiatives of their own, while $2 billion from the Volkswagen funds will be invested in Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure and education programs over the next ten years.

However, there are uncertainties surrounding the electric vehicles infrastructure ownership and responsibilities, rate design, range capabilities, and charging times, which can be deterrents to widespread consumer adoption. A tight, ongoing coordination is required between all parties. The rollout of programs, technologies, protocols, and standards needs to proceed in an integrated way.

The long list of EVs & the Grid participants includes San Diego Gas & Electric, South California Edison, Foothill Transit, City of Seattle, California Energy Commission, General Motors and BMW Group.

Critical issues that will be covered at the summit include energy service business models, infrastructure ecosystem to accelerate EV adoption and the impacts of demand charge reform.

Additionally, the Summit will include regulatory perspectives on electric vehicles adoption. Attendees will get insights from distinguished speakers, such as Amy Zimpfer, Associate Director, Air Division of US Environmental Protection Agency, and Elise M. Keddie, Manager, Zero Emission Vehicle Implementation of California Air Resources Board.
