Presenters include leading local EV, energy, and customer-side experts from ChargePoint, GridScape, Google, SAP Labs, Green Charge Networks, PG&E, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs, the Moffett Park Business Group and others. The workshop will present and discuss local trends and issues associated with enterprise deployment of PEV charging infrastructure, and will focus on the emerging needs and opportunities for managing this major new source of demand for electricity – at a customer level, and at a grid level. 

Locally, energy use from EV charging is becoming material for hosting organizations, and for the electric grid as a whole. More broadly, PEVs represent a new ‘Distributed Energy Resource’ – a potentially flexible source of both demand and supply for electric power.
