US’ first-ever National EV Charging summit to happen soon and the online event is free to the public.
It is designed to support the federal commitment to build out a US-wide electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
Attendants will include Reps. from the Biden administration, vehicle and utility industries, unions, and outside experts.
A coalition of business, labor and environmental advocacy leaders will host the US’ first-ever National EV Charging Summit on January 20, 2022.
The event will bring together representatives from the Biden administration, vehicle and utility industries, unions, and outside experts to showcase a new level of collaboration supporting the federal commitment to build out a US-wide electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
The virtual event, hosted by the National EV Charging Initiative, will feature conversations about the development and operation of a US-wide EV charging network.
It follows President Joe Biden’s signing of infrastructure legislation that includes $7.5 billion to install charging stations along highways and in communities nationwide.
The summit will also spotlight government, industry, and regional collaboration, and corporate commitments that are helping to drive the development of that charging network.
Panels will discuss:
- The numbers and types of EV chargers that will be needed to support scaled EV adoption in the US
- The different needs of different sizes of EV vehicles
- How a national EV infrastructure sector can build inclusive economic growth, increase stable and well-paid jobs, and address the mobility needs of everyone, especially historically underserved communities
- Financing challenges and opportunities to mobilize the private investment needed to scale and deploy EV charging across the US
