Utility Planning for Electric Vehicles on the Grid

Utility Planning for EVs on the Grid

May 24-25, 2022 | Online :: Central Time

The scale at which transportation electrification is taking place has profound impacts to the electric grid, ushering in a new era of utility involvement in private and public transport. While utilities understand the important role they play, nationwide utilities are in different phases of the journey.

EUCI’s virtual event, Utility Planning for EVs on the Grid is an annual conference presented by utilities for utilities. Hear from investor-owned and municipal utilities from Austin Energy, Avangrid, Consolidated Edison, Pepco Holdings, PSEG, TEP, and TVA. Get best practices and lessons learned from your peers who will showcase their efforts toward electric vehicle integration. Utility EV program managers will also have an opportunity to gain valuable information and insight from Hyundai, the City of New York, the City of Phoenix, Cobb County Fleet Management, Proterra, American Battery Solutions, and more!

Learning Outcomes

This virtual event will provide attendees an opportunity to:

  • Review the latest information on legislative and regulatory drivers for transportation electrification
  • Assess EV models, charging infrastructure, and key market drivers
  • Gauge and forecast EV adoption rates for better planning and programming
  • Assess impacts of EV load on the grid and system stability risks
