EV Grid Integration

EV Grid Integration


The biggest barrier to a full zero-emission transportation future is infrastructure. Just like a national gas-powered transportation system needed coast-to-coast gas stations to be built and complex supply chain logistics to transport fuel across the country, EVs need charging infrastructure with ready access to grid-provided energy in order to power EVs for daily commute and long-distance travel alike. For that to happen, EV charging providers must work closely with utility providers to buil...
With the anticipated announcement by EPA this week of the final version for its light-duty and medium-duty vehicle regulation, the transportation world is abuzz about the potential for two thirds of new passenger vehicles sold in 2032 to be EVs. To help you understand the implications of this rule, EV Hub Live is hosting experts Audrey LaForest from Automotive News and Chris Harto from Consumer Reports to discuss the details of the regulation, the response from the transportation industry, an...
The Inflation Reduction Act aims to create nine million good jobs over the next decade, with ten percent of those jobs in clean manufacturing. This echoes the manufacturing boom that created the Steel Belt, bringing life to communities across the heartland of America. But that boom eventually led to the Rust Belt and a sense among manufacturing workers that they had been left behind. With labor movements on the rise, workers are becoming more optimistic for another growth of sustainable commu...

When we think about EVs, many people immediately imagine electric cars quickly and quietly zipping down the highway. But for our guests today, the EV future includes alternative forms of transportation—like electric bicycles and scooters, or electric buses and rail. Our guests Stephanie Lotshaw from TransitCenter and Mike Salisbury from the City and County of Denver will discuss the importance of developing and providing alternatives to electric cars in an EV future, particularly in metropoli...
