Utility Planning for Electric Vehicles on the Grid

Utility Planning for Electric Vehicles on the Grid

July 13, 2021 | 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 that they have an important role to play, utilities nationwide are in different phases of the journey.

Building on last year’s success, EUCI’s virtual course, Utility Planning for EVs on the Grid is a repeat event presented by utilities for utilities. Hear from investor-owned, municipal, and cooperative utilities from New York, Georgia, Texas, Arizona, Washington, and Hawaii. 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 industry leaders such as BMW, Electrify America, a trailblazing green fleet operator, and more!

Learning Outcomes

This virtual course will provide attendees an opportunity to:

  • Gauge upcoming EV technologies and charging infrastructure
  • Capitalize on EV adoption including load growth expectations
  • Review and discuss VGI, V2G, and smart charging
  • Discover partnership opportunities with local government agencies and solutions providers
  • Evaluate strategies for medium & heavy-duty fleet electrification
  • Develop deployment plans for fast & ultra-fast charging networks
  • Assess impacts, challenges, and opportunities with EVs on the electric grid
