Event Report

We were honored to have 2 highly experienced professionals with lifelong work in the area of renewable energy and V2X solutions for the next leap in value of EVs to our energy transition. 

Event Description


As a slice of the larger context for our necessary energy transition to renewables, what value will EVs provide? How will EVs benefit the grid, home and microgrid Community Resilience Hubs for climate change adaptation? 

What will be presented: 
* how EVs will provide storage for our energy transition;
* the technology making grid support and integration possible; 
* how electric school buses can contribute;
* what is already being done; 
* how we hope to inspire you to take next steps with EVs as part of microgrid Community Resilience Hubs for climate adaptation in your community and region 
* with plenty of time for Q&A. 

This event will be appropriate for introductory as well as advanced levels of understanding. We invite you to join us for the next steps in EV adoption. Please also invite your government and community decision makers and anyone else who may be interested.
