An Invitation to Automotive OEMs

PLMA, the energy industry’s association for practitioners of flexible load management, demand response, distributed energy resources, and managed charging, invites you to join us for the second PLMA EV Symposium.

To be hosted in Chicago, Illinois, PLMA’s 2024 EV Symposium will convene electric utilities plus their vendors and advisors for two half-days of discussions: 

  • DAY 1 (Aug 13): An update on the utilities' learnings and experiences with EVs to date, including managed charging, V2X applications, and other EV opportunities.

Building Synergy between Automotive OEMs and Electric Utilities

With two half-days of practical, interactive, experience- and data-driven sessions; robust cross-industry networking; and an opportunity to connect in a meaningful way with electric utility colleagues who focus on EV programs; you’ll gain a deeper understanding of:

  1. Why managed charging is critical to both the automotive and utility industries’ success, and how it works;

  2. The electric utilities' major business drivers: maintaining grid reliability, building new revenue, and enhancing customer engagement;

  3. The utilities’ charging capacity and the process and lead time to increase it, how utilities address grid reliability, and their EV program challenges to date;

  4. Shared auto-utility customer synergy, and overcoming the current and future barriers identified by utility customers to EV adoption;

  5. Hurdles to building a highly collaborative relationship between auto OEMs and utilities, and how to address these;

  6. Understanding the nature of the auto-utility collaboration that will best support rapid EV sales as well as a reliable, resilient, sustainable electric grid.
