This highly disruptive transition is picking up speed and, in this session, we will review the market forces in play that are driving the transition to electric vehicles. The discussion will include technical, economic, political, and regulatory issues that impact the speed of this transition. The discussion will include how the electric grid that will power new electric vehicles will need to change and how electric vehicles will drive new smart home and smart grid innovations.
