This webinar will address recent research on plug-in electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure development and usage and the critical role of utilities in enabling the growth of the EV market.

We will address the prospective impacts of EVs on the electricity grid, how much charging is needed, what kinds of charging (e.g. home, workplace, and public charging), and associated impacts on charging costs and upstream electricity emissions. We will also examine emerging charging trends from recent in-use data related to vehicle range, charging speed and price.
