To foster this, next month the University of Central Florida’s Electric Vehicle Transportation Center (EVTC) will host its first EV Transportation and Technology Summit.
The U.S. Department of Transportation-funded research gift was established in 2013 and from Oct. 20-22 leaders in the field will gather to discuss all things pertaining to the growing electrified vehicle world.
A major focus will be transportation plotting and infrastructure supplies, but this will be an all-encompassing event.
Speakers will take into consideration mainly all-electric cars, plug-in hybrids; where electrification is going, with actionable
EV Summit Goals
1. Increase awareness among key legislative, business and plotting officials
2. Grant a review of the current and near-term technologies
3. Review the current deployment accomplishments and outline the challenges going forward
Anyone is invited to register and attend. The event should be of particular interest to public whose personal life or professional organization will be directly affected by new plug-in cars this decade and beyond.
Progression has already begun, by year’s end America will have bought 400,000 highway legal plug-in electrified vehicles. This progression rate was quicker than that of regular hybrids last decade, and the market is projected from these first beginnings to accelerate.
