8:15 a.m.–9:15 a.m. Pacific: Close the Gap: Scaling EV Infrastructure Today

To keep pace with the rapidly growing interest in electric vehicles, vast networks of publicly accessible chargers will need to be built and put into operation. A failure to scale to meet growth will slow the progress decarbonizing road transport. This timely session focuses on a discussion of scaling strategies and what to consider to tie into the nation’s infrastructure. Topics covered include: 

    • Societal, demographic, and monetary factors
    • The role of software and services, new business models, consolidation, and competition
    • Hiring talent to solve the vast and complex technological, operational, and consumer-acceptance challenges
