Summit Agenda

The Optimizing the Grid for Transportation Electrification Summit will feature panels and working sessions to explore the broader energy implications of EVs and other forms of electrification. Our planning centers on these topics:

Holistic and Integrated Approaches to Electrification – This session discussion delves into how buildings, electric vehicles, renewables, automated DR, grid controls, and emerging technology can all work together as a holistic solution to managing load.

Key Components to Managing Transportation Electrification – This panel kicks off a series of deep-dive discussions in which participants to choose discrete topic areas of interest to explore further. Topics will include: residential electrification, commercial/industrial electrification, integration of heavy-duty fleets, complicating issues to upgrading the distribution system, and more.

Leveraging Data Analytics to Optimize Grid Investments – From predicting energy consumption to balancing load, to integrating demand response and anticipating capacity and infrastructure needs, this discussion investigates how and why data analytics will play a large role in managing the modernized grid.
