ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE USA 2011
Upgrading Grid Infrastructure, Installing Public And Home Charging Technologies and Adapting Metering & Billing Strategies To Integrate Electric Vehicles Into The Networked Grid
The imminent roll-out of mass market Electric Vehicles means that electric utilities from around the country will have to deal with a new load on their grids and develop the necessary charging infrastructure both in public places and the home to support them. To do this, they will have to establish innovative business models and regulatory frameworks for making EV charging profitable, invest in upgrading grid systems and adapt cost-effective technologies and metering strategies to support these business models.
The 3rd International Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure 2011 will be the first truly national event bringing together multiple stakeholders including utilities, vehicle OEMs, city planners and federal and municipal regulators to discuss practical solutions for establishing profitable EV Charging Infrastructure and upgrading grid systems to manage the impact of EVs on the grid.
Utilities from different states up and down America, both urban and rural, will come together to share case studies, data and best practices on how to integrate Electric Vehicles into the networked grid. They will be offering practical business models for making EV Charging infrastructure a commercial reality, assessing the impact that EVs will have on grid systems and strategies for upgrading systems to manage this impact. They will also be evaluating strategies and technologies for managing the impact of EVs on load profiles, looking at optimal metering and billing strategies and explaining practical progress in integrating Electric Vehicles into the home. Vehicle OEMs will also forecast the impact of EVs on the grid whilst government regulators will explain their long term strategy for supporting investment in EV Charging infrastructure. Finally speakers will evaluate key EVSE, fast charging and V2G technologies to determine the most cost-effective options.
The event will feature leading industry figureheads from:
- Utilities companies from different states up and down America
- Vehicle OEMs
- Infrastructure technology providers
- Municipal Regulators including Public Utility Commissioners, Commissioners from state departments of Energy and Transportation, and City Planners
- Federal regulators
Speakers at this summit will be:
- Providing innovative business models from utilities, vehicle OEMs, City Planners and governments for ownership and investment in both public and private EV charging infrastructure
- Determining what impact mass penetration of Electric Vehicles will have on load profiles and therefore grid systems
- Understanding what advances will have to be made to upgrade transmission, distribution and communications systems to meet the demands of electric vehicles
- Analyzing how Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure can be integrated into the smart home and developing metering and billing strategies specific to residential charging
- Determining best practices for metering, billing and rate structure strategies for incentivizing Electric Vehicle users to charge at certain times of the day
- Understanding federal and municipal government strategies for incentivizing and supporting the development of EV charging infrastructure
- Evaluating the most effective charging station, EVSE and communicationtechnologies for integrating and monitoring electric vehicles on the grid
"The conference was very professional in all terms and it offered a lot of views from many different countries."
THE BUSINESS CASE
For the first time...
...utilities from East Coast, West Coast & Central states, both urban and rural, will be collaborating with multiple stakeholders including Vehicle OEMs, city planners, governments and the EV supply chain to find real solutions for making EV charging infrastructure commercially viable.
Developing public and in-home charging infrastructure to support EVs and ensuring that EVs have the minimum impact on the grid is vital not just for the utilities operating the grids but also every company with a stake in the commercially viable EV industry.
In order to practically move forward on these topics, speakers at EV Charging Infrastructure USA, will be providing commercial solutions on the following topics:
BUSINESS MODELS: Providing innovative business models from utilities, vehicle OEMs, city planners and governments for ownership of and investment in public and private EV charging infrastructure
IMPACT ON THE GRID: Determining what impact mass penetration of Electric Vehicles will have on grid systems and load profiles
INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADE: Understanding what upgrades will have to be made to upgrade transmission, distribution and communication systems to meet the demands of Electric Vehicles
IN-HOME CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE: Analyzing how Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure can be integrated into the smart home and developing metering and billing strategies specific to private charging
METERING AND TARIFFING: Determining optimal billing, metering and rate structure strategies for incentivizing electric vehicle users to charge at certain times of day
REGULATORY FRAMEWORKS: Understanding federal and municipal government strategies for incentivizing and funding the development of EV Charging infrastructure
TECHNOLOGY FOCUS: Evaluating the most cost-effective charging station, EVSE and communication technologies for integrating Electric Vehicles into the grid
