EV Policy
Advancing Green Energy Technology

According to a new survey by AAA, one in five Americans say they are likely to buy an electric car for their next new vehicle, that’s up from 15 percent from 2017. While EV’s make sense for customers and for the nation, the transition to EVs is still in its early stages and requires supportive technology and policies to overcome barriers to adoption. Advancements in battery life and efficiency coupled with the future expansion of charging stations across the nation will improve travel and make greater distances a reality. We’ll examine how both the private and public sectors are working to tackle policies and innovation and discuss how grid technology will impact and support the energy demands of tomorrow.

Going the Distance
Innovations in the EV Market

Electric vehicles are contributing to a cleaner, safer and more energy-efficient environment. As public interest for this emerging technology grows, there is an increased overall commitment to fossil fuel reductions and zero-emission alternatives as a result of automotive, shared and autonomous mobility innovations as well infrastructure modernization and upgrades.  With the EV market expected to see a major boom over the next decade, we’ll put you in the driver seat as we lay out the roadmap to what’s next for EV technology in the U.S.
