Summit Agenda

 - 09:25 CST

With the current version of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act calling for $300 million in charging and fuelling grants in U.S. FY 2022, followed by $400 million in FY and building to $700 million by FY 2026, how this money is going to be deployed, and who can take advantage of it is a key question.

And with an Executive Order calling for half of all new vehicle sales by 2030 to be zero-emission the pressure is ramping up on energy companies, municipalities, businesses, and fleets to get ready for electric.

 - 10:05 CST
  • How electric utilities can help to expand charging networks by owning stations themselves or partnering with private companies
  • Examining the challenges of expand charging to rural or overlooked communities and creating incentives for business owners or landlords considering installation to build a national network
  • Discussing how federal money can be deployed to upgrade the grid, establish connections and support chargepoints with renewable or energy storage assets

 - 12:05 CST
  • Understanding the state and federal regulatory challenges and roadblocks for utilities looking to support electric vehicles, and for businesses looking to establish connections to the grid
  • Examining the costs to upgrade infrastructure and modernize the grid to cope with electric vehicles, how storage or smart charging assets can mitigate these costs
  • Mapping out the timelines for utilities to establish connections and make upgrades for EV projects
  • How can utilities work closer together with municipalities, private businesses, charge point operators and fleet operations to cut project time, and deploy more chargepoints?

Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) services—in which electric vehicles can both charge from and send energy back to the grid—can provide valuable grid benefits. But before V2G can be implemented across the U.S., states have to navigate the evolving landscape of technical standards that govern the certification of V2G-enabled equipment and integrate these standards into their rules and technical documents.

● Introducing  V2G technologies and configurations

● Related technical and regulatory challenges

● Technical standards that govern V2G integration, including existing and upcoming standards and communication protocols that can make V2G a reality.
