Join Me In Florida — EV Summit Returns

EV Summit

Presenting at and covering the EV Transportation & Technology Summit in Cocoa, Florida, last year was a genuine pleasure and very informative. I’m happy to share that (despite my wife’s immigration visa being in limbo for ~9 months longer than it’s supposed to be … and counting) I’ll be presenting at the 2nd annual EV Transportation & Technology Summit in October. Actually, I’ll be giving presentations and moderating panels this time.

The dates are October 17–20, 2016, and the location is again Cocoa, Florida — at the University of Central Florida’s Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC).

The 2016 schedule is filling out with some interesting topics, and I’m sure it will have a great, packed lineup by the time of the event. From the website, here’s a quick rundown of conference topics:

Technology and Planning

  • EV technology workshops
  • EV R&D and the Future
  • Automated and Connected EVs
  • Electric Vehicle Grid Integration
  • EV & CAV Future
  • Driving the Decision, Life-Cycles of EV Transportation
  • EV environmental, social and economic life-cycle assessment

Policy and the Transportation Future

  • EVs and TPOs
  • Transportation’s Direction
  • EV Legislative Perspectives
  • The FAST Act, Funding Future Transportation
  • An OEM’s Perspective

From my experience there last year, I’d say that the event would be interesting for just about any CleanTechnica readers — well, at least the ones who are going to open an article about EVs! But the website highlights the following as targeted attendees:

  • Transportation planners (MPOs, TPOs and DOTs)
  • Planning, design and policy analysis consulting firms
  • Power service providers
  • Governmental and private sustainability managers
  • Large-scale employers
  • Automobile manufactures, dealers and associations
  • Fleet managers

As a refresher, presentations and articles I recorded, wrote, and published from last year’s EV Summit are here:

Whether you live in Florida, California, Oregon, Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, or Antarctica, I invite you and hope to see you at this year’s EV Summit — the prices are extremely reasonable.
