2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. Pacific: Supercharged: Fast Charging Infrastructure

More public and commercial BEVs on the road need a place to charge. Workplace and public charging can bolster continued adoption and enable a robust network for both consumers and fleets. With a power-limited grid, there is a benefit to pulling more power at a faster rate and through various charging levels. In this engaging session, attendees will hear how to: 

    • Consider emerging tools and technologies for grid expansion and microgrid adoption
    • Enable cost-effective scaling through charging strategies
    • Understand the requirements of DC fast charging 
    • Leverage bi-directional charging
