Vehicle Electrification Panel Webinar
South East Chapter
April 17, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Given the impact of the coronavirus crisis, we have decided to move our Friday April 17th event at AGU to a webinar! We will learn about new and upcoming policies and implementations in the world of vehicle electrification. Hear from our local experts on how this momentum gaining industry will change how we design and manage buildings, public spaces, and transportation infrastructure as a whole. We will end the afternoon discussing innovative concepts around EV’s and storage. The event will cover three major topics:
1. Policy: introduce policies that will shape the EV market in the Capital Region
2. Implementation: what does EV charging look like and cost, retro fits, expansion of current charging, new construction
3. Innovation: discuss the vehicle to grid (V2G) concept
