Grid Modernization Forum (100% Virtual)
May 19 - May 20
The 5th Annual Grid Modernization Forum, May 19-20, 2020 will be 100% virtual. There are conservative estimates that by 2040 half of all new vehicle sales will be electric. This likely will lead to more workplaces and retail locations offering charging stations as property amenities. With level two charging at 4 to 7 kW per charging station, there will be increased electric demand on properties and increased draw on the grid. How will the increased demand affect properties? How will the increased demand affect transmission and distribution? How is the infrastructure equipped to handle DC fast charging (120 kW) and extreme fast charging (350 kW+), battery storage? A special panel at the 5th Grid Modernization Forum, May 19-20, will provide views on these issues from a major electric utility; a producer of EVSE and distributed energy storage solutions; and a producer of intelligent energy conversion systems, energy storage and bidirectional charging infrastructure.
