Connecting utilities with government, charge point operators, and fleets as North America ramps up its EV charging infrastructure roll out.
As EV adoption grows, utilities and other power generators are grappling with the issue of determining the power load needed to charge those vehicles, and how to forecast when—and where—that electricity will be needed. To deal with these new connections the grid infrastructure itself will also need to be upgraded.
At the same time governments, fleet owners and charging infrastructure installers are struggling to work with utilities to establish connections to the grid, navigate new energy charges and tariffs, and finance the energy and charging infrastructure to support EVs.
This two-day event provided the energy sector and those installing and operating charge-points with insight into new solutions and technologies to manage demand, integrate renewable energy, and maintain the stability of the grid.
