The Nexus of EV Adoption and Utility Policy in Minnesota: 2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the Electric Vehicle sector. Tesla, General Motors, and Nissan are all planning the release of “mass market” electric vehicles with higher range at a reasonable price point. Nearly $5 billion nationally may be available for EV marketing and charging infrastructure through the Volkswagon settlement. This technology offers the promise of decarbonizing the transportation system while providing a potentially flexible load growth opportunity for utilities that could be targeted to off-peak periods and help to integrate higher levels of renewable electricity. Speakers from Xcel Energy, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and Drive Electric MN will discuss the latest trends and what it means for utility policy in our state.  

Please join us for lunch beginning at Noon, followed by the program from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

Box lunch will be provided.  Special meal requests need to be received no later than Monday, October 17.
